Deerhoof have returned with the new song ‘My Lovely Cat’, their first new music since last year’s Actually, You Can. The song is an ode to the celebrity cat Lil Bub, who passed away in 2019, and was recorded and mixed by her owner, Mike Bridavsky, at Winnipeg, Canada’s No Fun Club. Check it out below.
“If you were going to compose a song about a cute cat from the internet, then get it recorded and mixed and mastered by an outside producer known not only for their recording and mixing and mastering, but for their cute cat from the internet, well, you would be shrewd indeed,” the band remarked in a statement. “But this of course we did not do, because we didn’t know about Mike Bridavsky or Lil Bub when we wrote the song! Well, we think about him now: a true collaborator and artist and friend.”
