By Josiah HughesUp until now, we knew the tracklisting and release date for the fourth album from Brooklyn indie pop experimenters Grizzly Bear, but the record remained untitled. Now, however, the quartet have landed on a name.
The album is called Shields and will be released on September 18 via Warp, as previously reported.
The image above, which could pass off as part of the most hip playing cards collection in existence, is the album's cover. The tracklisting and a stream of Shields opener "Sleeping Ute" are available below.
