Animal Collective will release new soundtrack album 'Crestone' on February 16th.

The band have worked on the new cinematic venture, which follows a group of SoundCloud rappers who live in solitude in the Crestone, Colarado desert.

The film traces the path of an old friend who comes to make a movie, allowing reality and fiction to overlap.

Animal Collective composed the score, which will be released through Domino on February 16th.

The band's Geologist comments...

Living in the Sonoran Desert in the early 00’s had a long-lasting and profound effect on me, especially after multiple years in New York City. Since then I’ve had a vague idea for a sound that would reflect that experience, but no project ever led me to it. The images, sounds, stories, and structures created and documented in Crestone finally did.

Many thanks to Marnie, her crew, Dead God, the land, and as always, my brother Josh for the inspiration and opportunity to work on this project.

Check out the Crestone trailer below.
