Recorded this past winter in LA with Dave
Sitek (TV on the Radio) and early in spring of 2012
at the band's home studio in Brooklyn with Antony
Hegarty (Antony and the Johnsons), this single is
what we would call a double A-side single. Side A
"We Are On Fire" may have won the toss up for the
title track, but that doesn't imply the B-side "Tearz
For Animals" (featuring the vocal stylings of Antony
Hegarty) is any less fantastic! Two perfect additions
to the your soundtrack to summer!
The cover image also marks the first artistic
collaboration between visual artist Jesse Hazelip
and Bianca, a joint effort also known as Twin Rivers.
The art image for "Tearz For Animals" is a result from
a prison exchange project - "drawings from the inside, between friends, as a means of hope."
But that's not all! CocoRosie are also working with the talented Emma Freeman on a forthcoming video for "We Are On Fire". Emma also
directed the videos for "Lemonade" and "Gallows"
from the band's last album Grey Oceans.
