Tune-Yards Return with New Song ‘nowhere, man’

    Indie duo Tune-Yards have returned with their first new song in two years, ‘nowhere, man’. A reference to the Beatles song of the same name, the track arrives with a music video featuring stop motion animation by Japhy Riddle and Callie Day. Check it out below.

    “The song and the video for ‘nowhere, man’ were created under conditions of feeling squeezed and pushed to the brink—relatively, of course,” the duo’s Merrill Garbus said in a statement. “I wanted to ask, ‘How loudly do I have to shout and sing before I’m heard?’ And the video asks, too, ‘What am I not hearing?’ We hope the music brings energy and a strong wind of encouragement to those who are shouting and singing loudly for justice right now.”

    Tune-Yards’ most recent album was 2018’s I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life. Last year, they contributed to the soundtrack and original score for Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You. The duo are also set to appear on Sadie Dupuis’ Sad13 LP Haunted Painting, which comes out this Friday.
