Goat reveal sleeve and the music off new single 'It's Time For Fun' – LISTEN NOW


As previously announced, Goat have a new single coming out on 7 August.

The band have just revealed the sleeve (below) and more importantly what it sounds like and you can listen to it via youtube below.

The press release reads:

---

After their spectacular performance at Glastonbury last week, Goat return with a brand new single, "It's Time For Fun". This is Goat's first new music since the critically acclaimed second album Commune, which was released last September.  

Goat performed the single in their Glastonbury set which you can watch in full HERE.

The winter months following the release of Commune saw the band return to their village of Korpilombolo in Sweden to start anew on fresh material, and this two-track single collects the first fruits of this work.  However, these two songs were not recorded in their native land - instead Goat decided to hit the studio on a recent excursion to the Americas. The A-side ‘It’s Time For Fun’ was recorded in New York, whilst B-side ‘Relax’ was committed to posterity in Sao Paolo.

New York seems a fitting location for the recording of ‘It’s Time For Fun’ as the spirit of ESG and early ‘80s No Wave runs through the skittering drum machines, dubby basslines, fuzzy synth and the haunted chants of the vocals.

Its flip-side ‘Relax’ mainlines a similar vibe, yet this reflective instrumental marries ‘Future Days’ like drum machine, tribal percussion, grooved-out bass and a fan-driven organ solo that gyrates elegantly in a manner akin to a North African Heldon or Fripp & Eno.

Listen to 'It's Time For Fun' here:



A hectic and hedonistic summer of rituals and revelations lies ahead of Goat, as well as recording their third album for Rocket, they’ll be bringing their legendarily earth-shaking live show to a plethora of festivals: 

01 August: Näsåker/Sweden – Urkult Festival
21 August 2: Hasselt/Belguim – Pukkelpop Festival
22 August: Wales/UK – Green Man Festival
28 – 29: August La Tour-de-Peilz/Switzerland – Nox Orae Festival
17 October: Greece/Athens – Gagarin Festival

It's Time For Fun" will be released as a limited edition 7" and digital on 7th August 2015 via Rocket Recordings (and by Stranded Records in Scandinavia and released on September 25th in the US by Sub Pop). The sleeve for each label's release is different, so fans can collect the set!

You can preorder the ltd colour vinyl 7" here from the Rocket shop: https://rocketrecordings.bandcamp.com
