Caribou Makes His Synthy Return With ‘You And I,’ A Preview Of His Upcoming Album ‘Suddenly’

You wouldn’t know it by looking at his (relative lack of) output, but Caribou (real name Dan Snaith) has been busy over the past few years. His most recent album, Our Love, came in 2014, but yesterday, he started hinting that a comeback was nigh. In a teasing tweet from yesterday, he wrote, “You didn’t think I just made one track in 5 years did you?” Snaith has actually made a whole album, and he just announced that Suddenly is set for release on February 28, 2020. He also shared “You And I,” a kaleidoscopic synth-pop tune that goes to a lot of different places in just four minutes.

Snaith says of the song, “‘You and I’ was one of the first tracks on the album that I started, and one of the last tracks I finished; it existed in some form or other throughout the whole arc of making the record. It also captures a lot of what the record, and the title of the album, are about — the track changes suddenly and unpredictably, and it is about a change in my life that happened out of the blue.”

Listen to “You And I” above, and below, find the Suddenly art and tracklist, as well as Caribou’s upcoming tour dates.
