tUnE-yArDs RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘WATER FOUNTAIN’ & REVEALS ALBUM DETAILS

Due out May 2nd, Nikki Nack - the third album from tUnE-yArDs - was first announced when Merrill Garbus celebrated her birthday by posting a ‘MegaMix’ of album tracks online. Delighting fans, she’s teased everyone long enough and is now ready to reveal more album details.

Experiences in her time off between albums proved to be influential in its songwriting process; a life-affirming trip to Haiti, her upbringing, and finally catching up with 80s kid’s TV programme Pee Wee’s Playhouse some 25 years since its first broadcast were all topics at the forefront of Merrill’s mind that helped to shape and colour the record.

Eager to never stand still, Merrill enlisted producers Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A).

The first track to be heard from the album, ‘Water Fountain’, received its premiere on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music radio show and can now be heard streaming from Merrill’s website, www.tuneyards.com.
