Animal Collective announce new live album 'Ballet Slippers'

To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of their sublime breakthrough LP 'Merriweather Post Pavilion', Animal Collective have now announced their plans for a new live album, arriving later this month.

The new full-length 'Ballet Slippers' was recorded across a string of shows during their 2009 tour of North America, and is set to be released both physically and digitally on the 22nd November, with a deluxe 3xLP vinyl arriving through Domino Recordings.

Speaking about their live collection, the band said, “It’s impossible for us to remember the years around 'Merriweather Post Pavilion' without thinking about the live experience. As the record turns 10, there has been a lot of talk about the album itself, but so much of the time living with those songs was spent on stage together. Every night on tour, the music opened up again, leaving us new spaces to fill and new opportunities to rethink our past. Just as 'Merriweather' documents the era in one of its forms, we wanted 'Ballet Slippers' to do the same for some of its other forms.”

Relive the infamous single 'My Girls' in the player and see the album's full tracklisting below.
