In anticipation of Animal Collective's new album, Painting With (February 19th), the guys have launched an interactive app. The app is also called "Painting With," and the title makes a whole lot more sense once you know how it works.
Once downloaded, users have the ability to create images and drawings with someone else in real time. It also features a sneak peek at one of the tracks off the new record, titled "Lying In The Grass." AC lovers who download the app are encouraged to share what they create on social media using the #PaintingWith hashtag, as the submissions will be posted on the Animal Collective website. The app also includes a strobe light which, interestingly enough, animates the turntable slipmat that comes with the deluxe edition LP.
