Deerhoof are releasing a new album, Mountain Moves, on September 8 via Joyful Noise. Previously they shared its first two singles, "I Will Spite Survive" (which features Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak and Flock of Dimes) and "Your Dystopic Creation Doesn't Fear You" (which features Awkwafina). Now they have shared another song from the album, "Come Down Here And Say That, "which features Stereolab's Læticia Sadier. Listen below via She Shreds (who premiered it).

Deerhoof's Greg Saunier had this to say about the song to She Shreds, explaining that the title was inspired by something Bob Dylan once said onstage at London's Royal Albert Hall in response to audience members angry that he had gone electric: "Dylan was centering the young and leaving the folk purists in the dust. Now the baby boomers he sang to have gone from being radical role models to being the generation that put Trump in office. The numbers say that the young and the poor are trying to save the world for everyone, and the boomers and the powerful are saying 'you are dreaming.' Of course they say it from a safe, elitist, corporate-sponsored, media-produced distance, so we wanted to say, 'come down here and say that to our faces.'"

Mountain Moves also features Juana Molina, 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.

A previous 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."
