Back in March of this year, Animal Collective member Avey Tare released his third solo album Cows On Hourglass Pond. Since its release, he’s been celebrating the LP by taking it out on tour. And today, he’s shared a handful of live versions in the form of a new EP.
The EP is titled K.C. Yours, which is a title you might recognize as its one of the songs from Cows On Hourglass Pond. In fact, this EP not only is an opportunity for Tare to share some recent live recordings, but also to highlight that very song. The EP consists of the original album version of “K.C. Yours” as well as a live version and two other live versions of songs from Cows.
Additionally, Avey Tare is further highlighting the single with a new official music video. Like most of his videos, it’s a bizarre, mostly animated collection of visuals that help the song come even more to life.
Speaking about the new EP and video, Avey Tare says:
“K.C. Yours is one of my personal favorites from Cows On Hourglass Pond. But what really makes me feel good about this release is that (in many ways) it continues or represents the process of collaborating with an artistic family that has been going strong in my life for many many years. I’ve known Aaron Warren for about 20 years now and I’m really excited to have had him create this video for the track (check out his band Black Dice if you have not. They Amaze). Of course the live tracks here could not have happened without Josh and Jeremy and I am thankful everyday that I get to make music with these amazing people. Also my sis Abs who edited the live video continues to be one of my favorite people to collaborate with. Hope you all out there enjoy the sights and sounds and are also taking time to feel gratitude for the good people in your lives. Give them a big hug cause why not?”
