Deerhunter released a new album, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, back in January via 4AD. Now they have shared a 12-minute long brand new song, “Timebends.” The song starts as a more standard track, before turning into an instrumental jam in the latter half and then circling back. It was posted to Spotify with no fanfare and it’s unclear if it’s part of a new album or EP, or just a standalone single. Listen below.

Deerhunter’s frontman Bradford Cox meanwhile has also teamed up with Welsh singer/songwriter/guitarist Cate Le Bon for a new EP, Myths 04. Myths 04 is due out tomorrow (November 1) via Mexican Summer and is latest installment in a serious of collaborative EPs connected to the Marfa Myths festival in Mafa, Texas. In September the duo shared its first single, “Secretary,” which was one of our Songs of the Week.

Deerhunter’s Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? was the follow-up to 2015’s Fading Frontier, although in May 2017 they released the tour-only limited edition cassette The Double Dream of Spring. Deerhunter are, as always, led by Bradford Cox. The current line-up also features longtime member Lockett Pundt, founding member Moses Archuleta, Josh McKay, and Javier Morales. The album also features Cate Le Bon playing harpsichord on “Death in Midsummer” and singing on “Tarnung,” Tim Presley of White Fence playing “abstract lead guitar” on “Futurism,” Ben H. Allen III playing a “synthetic bass system” on “Plains,” and Ian Horrocks playing contrabass on “Nocturne.” Deerhunter produced the album alongside Le Bon, Allen III, and Ben Etter. Cox engineered the album with Etter and Samur Khouja, Cox, Etter, and Allen III all mixed the album. Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? was recorded in various cities at several studios: Marfa Recording in Marfa, Texas, Sonic Ranch in Texas, Seahorse Sound in Los Angeles, Maze Studios in the band’s native Atlanta, and in Cox’s attic in Grant Park, Atlanta.
