Deerhoof have released a new single "Your Dystopic Creation Doesn'Fear You" feat. Queens, NY rapper Awkwafina available now at AdultSwim.com/SinglesThe band will release their new album Mountain Moves on September 8th through Joyful Noise RecordingsThe new single follows the release of "I Will Spite Survive (ft. Jenn Wasner)," which premiered on Democracy Now!

Deerhoof provided Stereogum the following statement on the new track: 

"In the span of 10 short days last April, Prince passed away, and Bill Clinton shouted down a small group of black women who dared question the morality of 90s legislation with which he ushered in the era of unprecedented mass incarceration that continues to this day. Something about the random concurrence of Prince's glowing obituaries and Clinton's elitist intimidation tactics seemed to point at an absurd contradiction at the heart of America's treatment of its citizens of color. Fortunately a favorite writer, The Guardian's great Steven W. Thrasher, helped make sense of these events in his crucial commentaries: "Prince broke all the rules about what black American men should be" and"How dare Bill Clinton shout over Black Lives Matter protesters?"

Now over a year has passed. Many Americans, suddenly in search of strategies for surviving state repression, are turning away from witless neoliberal politicians who exploit fear to amass more power for themselves, and towards those vulnerable communities who have responded to a history of violence not with submission, but with humor, creativity, anger, and love. The song we are debuting today grew out of these observations. Strictly speaking it is not the first Awkwafina-Deerhoof collaboration, as both Satomi and Greg have guested on "My Vag" onstage. But this call-and-response is our first co-composition. Enjoy!"

The new album consists of 12 originals and 3 covers, featuring other collaborations with 
Stereolab's Læticia SadierJuana Molina, Xenia RubinosMatana Roberts, and more. For over 20 years, Deerhoof has been an unparalleled force in modern music. The band's fearless inventiveness has made them one of the most inspiring and important groups making music today. Mountain Moves is their latest studio album following the 2016 release of The Magic.
