Caribou (aka Dan Snaith) has announced a new album, Suddenly, and shared a new song from it, "You and I." Suddenly is due out February 28, 2020 via Merge and will be the first Caribou album in around five-and-a-half years, since 2014's Our Love. It includes "Home," a new single Caribou shared in October that was one of our Songs of the Week. Check out "You and I" below, followed by Suddenly's tracklist and cover art, as well as Caribou's upcoming tour dates.

Snaith has released a fair amount of music in the last five years, but most of it has been under his Daphni moniker. Suddenly was borne from over 900 draft ideas. "I record music every day, and I love it - as much or more than I have always done. I feel very lucky - the thrill has never, ever left me," Snaith says in a press release.

"For the last few albums at least, there's been a point about three-quarters of the way through where I work late into the night (as usual), but when I try and go to bed, ideas keep forcing me to get up and go back to the studio again," Snaith continues. "It happens over and over in one night. I can feel the gears whirring as I lie there trying to sleep, and I can't ignore the ideas for fear that it will be gone when I wake up the next morning."

The press release explains the album title: "Suddenly refers to the moments of dramatic and unexpected change that occur at points in any life and within any family - universal themes that catch you off guard and change your life in a heartbeat."

In the press release Snaith also had this to say about the new single: "'You and I' was one of the first tracks on the album that I started, and one of the last tracks I finished; it existed in some form or other throughout the whole arc of making the record. It also captures a lot of what the record, and the title of the album, are about - the track changes suddenly and unpredictably, and it is about a change in my life that happened out of the blue."

Um, yeah…there is a heck of a sudden change in that tract!  It is, in my opinion, kind of a shame as I was really digging it up until then!
