Our Love Out Oct. 7

This fall singer/songwriter Dan Snaith, a.k.a. Caribou, will deliver his new LP, Our Love. After sharing the record’s included cut “Can’t Do Without You,” this morning the Canadian native has premiered the record’s title track to enjoy.

According to Snaith, “‘Our Love’ was supposed to be a sort of mellow coda to ‘All I Ever Need’ [the track that precedes it which Owen Pallett also wrote the violin arrangements for] but then I made the big bassline and I liked the way it unexpectedly turned 90 degrees in the middle. This track went through a million versions. The bassline was definitely made out of fascination/admiration for dance music that is mind-numbingly simple. When I sent it to Owen and asked him to write parts I was talking about the arrangement and layout of the song as a kind of chess game where the parts move around one another in a sort of dance. He came back with the spectral Penderecki high strings and the more baroque riffs you can hear which we both agreed had to be used super super sparingly so it was more like a little treat for the listener when they appeared.”
