It was 2014 when Merrill Garbus last out out a tUnE-yArDs album, which seems far too long ago for such a vital and vibrant contributor to the modern music scene. Fortunately, that will all be coming to an end on January 19th when her new album I can feel you creep into my private life will come out through 4AD.

If you're too impatient to wait that long, you can at least for now hear the album's lead single 'Look At Your Hands', in which we have the familiar tUne-yArDs boisterousness but with a more streamlined, radio-ready production. Garbus says of the song:

"Yes, the world is a mess, but I've been attempting to look more and more inward: how do all of these "isms" that we live in manifest in me, in my daily activities, interactions?

Some of the 80s throwback production came from wanting the vocals to sound robotic, maybe to counter the sincerity of the lyrics. I started sampling my vocals in an MPC which I've wanted to do for years, and there was something that felt really right about my voice being trapped in a machine."
