LISTEN: tUnE-yArDs Release Thumping, Tantalizing New Track, “Water Fountain,” Off Of Upcoming LP

Confident crooner Merrill Garbus announced the release of her third album a few weeks ago with a "MegaMix" of the record's tracks, leaving tUnE-yArDs fans waiting with bated breath to hear Nikki Nack in full. Garbus has finally quit her teasing with the release of her single "Water Fountain" that has us salivating. 


In true tUnE-yArDs fashion, "Water Fountain" is strewn with thumping energy and Garbus's tantalizing vocals that urge you to do little else but dance along. It's fairly reminescent of those songs you used to sing on the playground: light and playful with repetitive chants throughout the track. Garbus ages that youthful sound with African-inspired percussion and thoughtful bass progression that compliment her lyricism. "Water Fountain" is an impressive first single from the album that drops May 6.


If the anticipation of a new album weren't enough, tUnE-yArDs will be touring with Arcade Fire at the end of April. Check out Nikki Nack's tracklisting below.
