Grizzly Bear New Album 

Grizzly Bear are bringing us a new album soon! And to peak our excitement, they've just released another single leading up to the album, "Mourning Sound." We've only had to wait five years, but now it looks like Grizzly Bear are ready to give us their 5th studio album on August 18th, 2017. By the way, they've been teasing us for over a year about this album...not nice Grizzly Bear! 

Painted Runes

The name of Grizzly Bear's new album is Painted Runes. Earlier in the month they released a single from the album "Three Rings." The single came paired with a characteristically odd artistic direction. It's got a great melody, with some wonderful drumming -- definitely something to get us hyped for the release of Painted Runes.

"Mourning Sound" 

"Mourning Sound" is the latest, and second single Grizzly Bear sent forth into the world (one giant leap for them, huh?). And you know what? It's been worth the wait. "Mourning Sounds" is simple, clean and well delivered. You can check the track below - it won't disappoint if you've come to know and love their three-part harmony.
