CocoRosie feat. Antony Hegarty – “Tearz For Animals” by forcefieldpr

This week, CocoRosie released its first new music in two years, the “We Are On Fire” b/w “Tearz For Animals” 7″ and digital single on Touch & Go. Today the band shares the official music video for the A-side in preparation for a batch of tour dates in California, which launched last night in SF.

The single was recorded with David Sitek in Los Angeles this past Winter. CocoRosie also recorded early in the spring of 2012 with Antony Hegarty at their home studio in Brooklyn. Antony Hegarty sings on “Tearz For Animals.” CocoRosie’s thoughts on the recording sessions:

“Working with Dave is a creative exorcism -musical kinship without boundary.”

The “We Are On Fire” artwork marks the first collaboration between artist Jesse Hazelip and Bianca (aka Twin Rivers). The “Tearz For Animals” art work came from a prison exchange project; drawings from the inside, between friends, as a means to hope.

In the past couple of years since the release of Grey Oceans:
Sierra produced the skeleton for an industrial opera 2011-2012
Bianca developed the script for her ballet during 2011-2012
Bianca Casady appeared in the Moscow Biennale 2011
CocoRosie appeared in the Marrakech Biennale 2012
CocoRosie toured Asia 2011
Bianca lived in Japan for a period of time while she worked on an exhibition near the end of 2010
