CocoRosie Are On Fire!

Just in time for summer, and well worth the wait! So listen up, it's official announcement time again. CocoRosie will release 2 new songs via 7" vinyl and digital format on June 5th, 2012.

Recorded this past winter in LA with Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio) and early in spring of 2012 at the band's home studio in Brooklyn with Antony Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons), this single is what we would call a double A-side single. Side A "We Are On Fire" may have won the toss up for the title track, but that doesn't imply the B-side "Tearz For Animals" (featuring the vocal stylings of Antony Hegarty) is any less fantastic! Two perfect additions to the your soundtrack to summer!

The cover image (above) also marks the first artistic collaboration between visual artist Jesse Hazelip and Bianca, a joint effort also known as Twin Rivers. The art image for "Tearz For Animals" is a result from a prison exchange project - "drawings from the inside, between friends, as a means of hope."

But that's not all! CocoRosie are also working with the talented Emma Freeman on a forthcoming video for "We Are On Fire". Emma also directed the videos for "Lemonade" and "Gallows" from the band's last album Grey Oceans. Check it out HERE for a peak of what visual creativity you can expect from this artistic combination.
