Deerhoof have announced a new album, Mountain Moves, and shared its first single, "I Will Spite Survive" (which features Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes). The album is due out September 8 via Joyful Noise and also features Juana Molina and Stereolab's Læticia Sadier, among others. Below is "I Will Spite Survive," followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as their upcoming tour dates.

Mountain Moves also features guest appearances from Awkwafina, Xenia Rubinos, and Matana Roberts. The 15-song album features 12 originals and three covers of songs by Bob Marley, The Staple Singers, and Violeta Parra.

The press release includes a new bio written by Kurt B. Reighley that describes the album as such: "If Mountain Moves were a movie, it would be a double feature, Journey to the Center of the Deerhoof and Escape from Planet Deerhoof, shown side-by-side simultaneously. The record epitomizes the band at its very best, exploring new realms between the poles of independence and invention. It also serves as a welcoming point of entry for new listeners outside Deerhoof's traditional orbit, an opportunity to bring even more voices into the communal conversation."
