Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox and Cate Le Bon were artists in residence at 2018’s Marfa Myths festival, and the collaboration led to Cate co-producing the new Deerhunter album, Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?. That album came out earlier this year, followed a few months later by the new Cate Le Bon album Reward, and now Cate and Bradford are releasing a collaborative EP for the Marfa Myths record series, Myths 004, on November 1 via Mexican Summer.

The songs for the EP were created and recorded from scratch over the course of a week at Marfa Myths. “Writing and recording in a week is a tall order – especially when such chemistry exists between all the musicians involved, and the possibilities are boundless,” Le Bon says. “We committed ourselves to embracing the chaos, surrendering to all moments and moods that travelled through. It’s a crude holiday scrapbook shared by all involved, an amalgamation of the changes in mood and light that shaped the days.”

The first single is the melancholic “Secretary” which details a humdrum life behind a desk and doesn’t seem miles away from the music Cate made on this year’s Reward, and includes some spoken word from Bradford. It’s cool stuff, as you can hear for yourself below.

The EP features contributions from Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint, Stephen Black of Sweet Baboo, Tim Presley of White Fence, and Samur Khouja. There’s also a new mini-documentary by Eli Welbourne, Have a Seat, which “[chronicles] Le Bon’s furniture building residency during Marfa Myths 2019″ and also features Bradford, which you can watch below.

Cate and Deerhunter will also be on tour together in the UK in November ahead of their appearances at Le Guess Who? in the Netherlands, and they both have other tour dates beyond those. All Are listed below.
