The video for "Tropic of Cancer" is directed by Avey Tare, one of Panda Bear's bandmates in Animal Collective. "Tropic of Cancer" was initially released as a single at the beginning of the year. Panda Bear has also shared a statement to go along with today's video release, which you can read below. Watch the video for "Tropic of Cancer" above.
It's always been in the spirit of Animal Collective to want to collaborate in many artistic ways with each other. Having been a fan of Noah's music since we were teenagers, it's sweet to finally be able to collaborate with him on something other than just making sounds and songs. I also am thankful to get my first shot at making something a little more long running in the visual/video world. This is one of my favorite songs on the record, hence my being involved with it. I'm grateful and excited to have worked on every moment of it and to have worked with all the sweet people who helped me put it together.
