Merrill Garbus of the band Tune-Yards performs onstage during the 2nd annual Music Tastes Good Festival at Marina Green Park on Oct. 1, 2017 in Long Beach, Calif.

Tune-Yards has announced their new album, breaking nearly four years of studio silence. I Can Feel You Creep Into My Private Life will be released on Jan. 19, 2018, following up 2014's Nikki Nack

"Yes, the world is a mess, but I’ve been attempting to look more and more inward: How do all of these “isms” that we live in manifest in me, in my daily activities, interactions?" Tune-Yards bandleader Merrill Garbus said in a statement. "Some of the ’80s throwback production came from wanting the vocals to sound robotic, maybe to counter the sincerity of the lyrics. I started sampling my vocals with an MPC which I’ve wanted to do for years, and there was something that felt really right about my voice being trapped in a machine."

Shared the first taste of with "Look at Your Hands." The track, as with the best Tune-Yards songs, is snappy and strange, packing Nate Brenner's rocksteady, distorted basslines and Garbus' gloriously striking vocals into an unforgettably glitchy hook.
