"hypnotized" follows previous sketchy. outings "hold yourself." and "nowhere, man", and is teamed with a Tee Ken Ng-directed video.

Tune-Yards first debuted the song last week during a performance for Jimmy Kimmel Live.

sketchy. will follow Tune-Yards' 2018 album I can feel you creep into my private life, and was created after Merrill Garbus and bandmate Nate Brenner started jamming for hours in their home rehearsal studio on a daily basis with live instruments. Garbus says, "I started remembering that people come to us to be entertained, to move, to feel joy. And together, I think, we can wake up."

Last week Tune-Yards also contributed a cover of The Breeders' "Cannonball" to 4AD's 40th anniversary compilation Bills & Aches & Blues.

"hypnotized" is out now. Tune-Yards' sketchy. album will be released via 4AD on Friday (26 March), and is available to pre-order now.
