Caribou shares “Our Love” title track & Daphni mix

Caribou shares “Our Love” title track & Daphni mix

Following the rapturously received news of his forthcoming album (due October 7th via Merge), Caribou has revealed album title track “Our Love.”

Built around warm, bubbling beats and Dan Snaith’s distinctive vocal loops before taking a bass-heavy turn in the middle, you can listen to “Our Love”–both the album version & the Daphni remix–below.

Pre-order the album Our Love at iTunes or from the Merge store now.

As Dan Snaith explains, “‘Our Love’ was supposed to be a sort of mellow coda to ‘All I Ever Need’ [the track that precedes it, which Owen Pallett also wrote the violin arrangements for], but then I made the big bassline and I liked the way it unexpectedly turned 90 degrees in the middle. This track went through a million versions. The bassline was definitely made out of fascination/admiration for dance music that is mind-numbingly simple. When I sent it to Owen and asked him to write parts, I was talking about the arrangement and layout of the song as a kind of chess game where the parts move around one another in a sort of dance. He came back with the spectral Penderecki high strings and the more baroque riffs you can hear, which we both agreed had to be used super, super sparingly so it was more like a little treat for the listener when they appeared.”

Our Love is due out on October 7th via Merge and features collaborations with Jessy Lanza and Owen Pallett. It was mixed by David Wrench and features artwork by Jason Evans/Matthew Cooper.
