Grizzly Bear share dreamy pop gem "Four Cypresses"

23 June 2017, 10:41 | Written by Laurence Day

Grizzly Bear have lifted the lid on "Four Cypresses", another superb preview of upcoming record Painted Ruins.

The track links up with "Mourning Sound" and "Three Rings" to preview the group's new LP, their fifth in total but first for new major label home Columbia.

It was recorded at Allaire Studios in upstate New York, plus "various locations" around Los Angeles - including band member and producer Chris Taylor's Terrible Studios. Grizzly Bear have been working in the studio on the LP since 1 June last year, providing many updates in the time since - in October it was revealed they were "90%" done.

"We're feeling more adventurous with the sonic directions, changing it up a little bit - not like, a techno dance album…" frontman Ed Droste explained in an interview in 2015.
