It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Dan Deacon. In recent years he’s gone feet first into multiple collaborative projects, and he’s also been toiling away on a new album. Now with that album Mystic Familiar set for release in January, he shares the lead single “Sat By A Tree” and its video for us to enjoy.
The song opens with a cluster of instruments, taking your down a road of sound. In Deacon style, the longer the track plays, the more it opens up. The falsetto vocals add a nice touch while the instrumentation and arrangements are on another level. Deacon has certainly been going hard while he’s away, as the song is rife with tones and notes that dazzle
The song and the video can be streamed on all platforms for either. Mystic Familiar is available for preorder directly from Domino Recordings ahead of its January 31 release date. Dan Deacon will be on tour beginning tonight at U Street Music Hall in Washington, DC until May 02 at 930 Club in Washington, DC. His complete list of tour dates can be located here. Tickets for the bulk of the tour go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
