Grizzly Bear will release the follow-up to their 2009 breakthrough album Veckatimest on September 16th. The band have not revealed the title of the new album, but they have shared one song from the set. "Sleeping Ute," which you can hear below, is one of the Brooklyn quartet's most elaborate compositions to date, suggesting that this could be the group's most dramatic and ambitious record yet.
The track listing for Grizzly Bear's forthcoming album, their fourth, is as follows:
"Speak in Round"
"A Simple Answer"
"Sun in Your Eyes"
The band will play a handful of U.K. dates in August and will head out on a North American tour in September, kicking off with a gig in Knoxville, Tennessee on the day the album hits stores. The band's North American tour itinerary is below.
