tUnE-yArDs celebrates her birthday today with the news that her new album, Nikki Nack, is in the can.
Being released in the week commencing 5th May, Nikki Nack follows on from 2011's hugely successful W H O K I L L, an album that topped the highly prestigious Village Voice Pazz & Jop poll, based on votes from 700 of America’s most notable music critics.
After affording herself a much needed break, Merrill Garbus is back. As well as announcing a raft of live shows, she's also given her fans their first taste with a ‘Megamix’ of the album; "I've put together a mash-up of a lot of the songs from the album, so you can get a tiny taste. We really can't wait to play this music for you. Thanks for all your support and patience while we cooked this chicken!," she said when posting it online earlier this morning.
Nikki Nack is released on 4AD in the week commencing 5th May.
