Animal Collective launch free IOS App. that allows early access to the song "Lying in the Grass"

Animal Collective have launched a free iOS app, that allows early access to the song “Lying in the Grass” from their forthcoming studio album, Painting With, out Feb 19th on Domino.

While listening to the song ‘Lying In The Grass’, the ‘Painting With’ app allows for real-time collaborative painting between two users. Fans can record, submit, and share their creations from the app to Twitter and Instagram by using the hashtag #PaintingWith. The app also includes a strobe light feature that animates the zoetropic turntable slipmat that is included in the deluxe edition LP. The song will see its official release, via all the usual digital channels, this coming Monday February 1st.

A worldwide 2016 Animal Collective tour is now on sale. All shows are listed below.
