Mickey Hart feat. Avey Tare: Wayward Son

A collaboration between two acclaimed sonic experimenters—Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and Animal Collective vocalist and musician Avey Tare—has resulted in a track of unexpected pop beauty, “Wayward Son.” With gentle

psychedelic moments swirling about with electronic pulsation before yielding to twinkling balladry, the song rides forward on Hart’s percussion and Avey Tare’s warm, inviting vocals. The track hails from Hart’s forthcoming solo album, RAMU, out in November.
