Speaking about the 10th anniversary of their iconic album, Animal Collective explain, "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."
Ballet Slippers is mixed by Ajay Saggar and edited by Noah Lennox (Panda Bear).
