Animal Collective have confirmed plans to start work on a new album.

In an interview on Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 show, the band’s Noah Lennox revealed the band intend to begin work on their first new album since 2012’s Centipede Hz.

Lennon – aka Panda Bear – recently released his latest solo album, Panda Bear Vs The Grim Reaper.


“I’ve spent the past five weeks or so furiously trying to crank out stuff, and I’m sure Dave [Portner] is doing the same,” Lennox said. “I’m sure all of the guys are working on stuff. No concrete plans to go into the studio as of yet, no dates or anything, but I think it’s safe to say that some time this year we’ll record.”
