Hear Animal Collective’s New ‘Lying in the Grass’ Via Their New Painting App

Which allows to to 'Paint With' other people, natch

Update: Animal Collective have shared the full version of “Lying in the Grass,” which you can hear via Spotify, iTunes, or YouTube below without having to download their app. Check it out. 

Sometimes it feels like an album release just isn’t enough anymore. You’ve got to throw a parade, create an interactive website, or build an app, the last of which is exactly what Animal Collective have done to promote their forthcoming record, Painting With.

The Painting With app lets you do just that — use your finger to virtually paint with another person. Watch how it works below via a how-to video, which also includes a preview of the band’s new song “Lying in the Grass” — available in full on the app itself. Download the app for free here, grab Painting With (the album) on February 19 via Domino, and don’t miss SPIN’s recent interview with Animal Collective.
