NPR First Listen, "Water Fountain" Music Video, and Fallon
I’m writing from the tour van: we are BACK AT IT.
As we count down to the new album release on May 5/6, we wanted to give you a heads up about some new things:
- Breaking sonic news: NPR will preview the entire Nikki Nack album today as a First Listen feature. You can stream the whole darn thing! Canadian friends, CBC is also streaming the full album here. If you dig it, your purchase here helps us out a lot.
- We released the video for Water Fountain. Making this video with Joel Kefali was pretty much my childhood dream come true (plus Nate got to dress up like a dog chef): Watch here.
- We’re now on the road opening for Arcade Fire. Wowza! Tickets for some shows are still available if you want to see us do some crazy arena singing: Tickets
- Also, tickets are selling fast for our headlining shows. Don’t be sad when they sell out! Get ‘em now! tune-yards.com
Note that we recently added some shows: Denver on 5/28, Splendour in the Grass (Byron Bay, Australia) on 7/26, and the Austin City Limits Festival in October.
- Pre-ordering the album means you get BONUSES!
I just signed about 10 million posters to include with the first 2000 pre-ordered albums (so I guess it was 2000 posters.) If you want the product of my mangled hands, as well as the MORE important product of our hard musical work, pre-order now. The poster’s pretty cool.
- Finally: we get to reunite with Jimmy Fallon! We’ll be playing The Tonight Show on May 9th.
We are so very lucky to get to play this music for you – thanks for your support.
