Dan Deacon has announced a new album, Mystic Familiar, and shared its first single, "Sat By a Tree," via a video for the track. He's also announced some new tour dates. Mystic Familiar is due out January 31, 2020 via Domino, which is almost five years after the release of his last album, Gliss Riffer, which came out on February 25, 2015. Check out "Sat By a Tree" below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as the tour dates.

Since Gliss Riffer, Deacon has kept busy scoring films, TV shows, and ballets. Daren Rabinovitch of Encyclopedia Pictura directed the "Sat By a Tree" video, which stars comedian Aparna Nancherla, 

A press release describes the album as such: "With Mystic Familiar, Dan gives us the result of years of obsessive work, play, and self-discovery. It's at once his most emotionally open record and his most transcendent, 11 kaleidoscopic tracks of majestic synth-pop that exponentially expand his sound with unfettered imagination and newfound vulnerability."
