    Experimental wizard Dan Deacon has announced a new album called Mystic Familiar. Coming January 31st via Domino, the 11-track full-length marks his first since 2015’s Gliss Riffer. As a first listen, Deacon has shared the lead single “Sat by a Tree”.

    While Deacon has been busy over the years since Gliss Riffer, projects like creating arrangements for Sigur Rós’ LA Philharmonic performances or scoring things like ESPN’s 30 for 30: Subject to Review and the documentary Rat Film haven’t truly been his. When he was able to step back from all that work, he focused on his own music with “therapeutic practices of self-compassion and mindfulness, daily prompts from Brian Eno’s deck of Oblique Strategies and the use of meditation,” according to a press release.

    The results are being teased with the new track “Sat by a Tree”. A psychedelic, driving rumination on impermanence, the single comes accompanied by a video from director Daren Rabinovitch starring comedian Aparna Nancherla. Watch it below.
