Caribou's Dan Snaith has announced a new album under his Daphni moniker. The project's fourth LP Cherry will arrive on October 7 via Snaith's own Jiaolong label, and today, he's shared new single "Cloudy," following the release of the album's title track back in May. 

Snaith said of the song: "The essence of this one is keeping it aloft — like occasionally nudging a balloon that's only just heavier than air to keep it afloat. For something so buoyant, I'm surprised how much it bangs in a club."

That buoyancy extends across the 14-track release, whose songs came together over an extended period of time, morphing and breaking free from Snaith's grasp as the collection became its own living, breathing organism.

"There isn't anything obvious that unifies it or makes it hang together," Snaith said of Cherry in a statement. "I think it was good that it was made without worrying about any of that. I just made it."

He continued: "It's weird that when the tracks were put in what felt like the right order it took on a new coherence, where it pings quickly from one idea to the next and, at least for me, hangs together in a way that feels unified. Maybe because it's hard to avoid the musical fingerprints I leave on the music I make, whether I want to or not."

Snaith's last full-length release as Daphni, Joli Mai, came in 2017. In 2019, he shared the Sizzling EP, after which he released Caribou's Suddenly in 2020, followed by its subsequent remix album in 2021.
