Deerhunter have released a new album, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?, today via 4AD. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously Deerhunter shared the album’s first single, “Death in Midsummer,” via a video for the song (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another song from the album, “Element,” which Cox called “an elegy for ecology (a landscape done in toxic watercolors).” Then Deerhunter shared “Plains,” which was inspired by James Dean and the last summer of his life he spent filming Giant in Marfa, Texas in 1955, his final film.

Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared? is 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. The album is 37 minutes long.
