Montreal's Braids are back with a new nine-minute track titled "Retriever", which marks their first outing of 2022.

"Retriever" is Braids' first new song in over a year, following their "Slayer Moon" and "2020" tracks that arrived in March last year.

Braids explain that the new single is "a nine-minute journey track, simple in its sentiment of love and friendship, yet complex in its lush arrangement and textural experimentation. We returned to our roots with this one, exploring new corners of sound, collaboration and a ‘DGAF’ attitude with where we ended up. This song is a trip back to euphoric freedom and lightness during a time of intense isolation. We were happy to travel there, and for you to now dive into it."

Their fourth album Shadow Offering arrived in 2020.

Braids' "Retriever" track is out now.
