Dan Deacon busts out some female-style vocals in 'Feel The Lightning', the first single to be taken from his freshly announced album Gliss Riffer. This comes just a couple of days after he released a crazy trailer, presumably for a new album, scheduled for "February 2015" – well, now it's confirmed.

The watery electro of 'Feel This Lightning', set to slow-nod beats, is a veil of abrasive yet pastel-toned sounds – a robust, booming slice of a cute but damaged dreamscape, garnished with weltschmerz-tinged romance, which the duetting vocals (all Deacon's own) help to illustrate. It has been released in the form of a video that contains within it all the soft-edged hallucinatory playpen antics of some kids' TV show – watch it below.

But that's not all! He's also just dropped a brand new website. How fun.

But wait there's more! Tour dates are also below.

Gliss Riffer is due February 23rd in (24th in North America) via Domino. And also!!! Pre-order the album!!!
