Avey Tare, the solo project of Animal Collective’s Dave Portner, will release new album 7s on February 17th, 2023 via Domino. Following three solo albums and one release under Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, 7s was recorded with producer Adam McDaniel (Angel Olsen, Archers of Loaf) at Drop of Sun Studios in Portner’s hometown of Asheville, North Carolina. Avey Tare has also shared two new songs from 7s, “The Musical,” with a video by Ellie Thatcher, and “Hey Bog,” with a visualizer by Abby Portner.

Described by Portner as “a dreamy surrealist landscape,” the album will be available on CD, standard LP, Indie Edition LP (violet vinyl), Domino Mart LP (violet vinyl + poster) and digitally. Avey Tare will also tour 7s across North America this Spring, kicking off March 23rd, 2023 in Asheville.

At home in the woods on the eastern edge of Asheville, N.C., during the pandemic Avey Tare sequestered himself in his small home studio to sort the songs he’d written and recorded with friends in the before times, including Animal Collective’s Time Skiffs. He often worked there for 12 hours a day, tweaking mixes alone, but by Fall, he was looking for a new project and the answer became 7s, his fourth solo album (and first in four years).
