On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards now operates as a duo, with Garbus joined by long-time collaborator Nate Brenner. Together the pair wrote and produced the album, with Garbus’ lyrics exploring her place in the world, and ruminating on race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies. Tune-Yards worked with a mixer, Mikaelin “Blue” Bluespruce (Solange, Skepta, Kendrick Lamar), and much of the album was recorded at John Vanderslice’s new studio, Tiny Telephone Oakland, in Oakland, CA and later mastered in Harlem, NY by Dave Kutch (Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper).
Tune-Yards previous 2014 album Nikki Nack was one of the most well-received of that year, and since its release the Oakland-based act has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as penning the standout track, ‘Action,’ from Mavis Staples’ Livin’ on a High Note album. Garbus also presents a monthly Red Bull Radio show called C.L.A.W. (Collaborative Legions of Artful Women), which highlights new music by female identifying producers, instrumentalists and vocalists. Meanwhile, Tune-Yards set up The Water Fountain, a fund for water-related causes which has donated over $75,000 to various non-profits since its inception.
