To mark the 10-year Anniversary of their modern classic, 'Merriweather Post Pavilion', Animal Collective release Ballet Slippers .  Mixed by Ajay Saggar and edited by Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) this is a live release, culled from several shows from that album’s North American tour and sequenced to reflect a full concert experience, complete with song transitions and interludes.  The result is a captivating document of the genre-defying group. Reflecting on the decade since Merriweather’s release, Animal Collective had this to say:

“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.”

Triple LP in M-Pack Gatefold with etching on side F and digital download card.

Animal Collective - Ballet Slippers is currently priced at a special preorder rate and will revert to full price on release. The release date of 10th April 2020 is estimated and subject to change.
