It’s been three years since they released their breakout album Veckatimest, but Brooklyn harmony-rock band Grizzly Bear are back! The quartet announced their fourth album today, and while it’s still without a final title, they’ve done the honorable thing and shared the first track “Sleeping Ute.” Sung by guitarist Daniel Rossen, “Ute” is everything you want in a Grizzly Bear tune: meandering acoustics, shattering drums that crash along Rossen’s delicate voice and the overarching sense that you’re running through a production of Lord of the Rings. Oh, did we say everything ‘you’ want? We meant everything we want.
The new album arrives September 18 on Warp.
