Animal Collective have recorded a new session for SiriusXMU, where they played a live version of the Silver Jews song “Trains Across the Sea.” The track first appeared on Silver Jews’ 1994 debut, Starlite Walker; in the session, Animal Collective spliced it with live favorite “Genie’s Open,” which has not officially been released. Watch it happen below.

In clips that have not been shared online, they also performed their Time Skiffs cuts “Prester John” and “Passer-by,” as well as “Bluish” from Merriweather Post Pavilion. Animal Collective issued Time Skiffs early this year, following their 2018 full-length Tangerine Reef. In 2019, the band shared Ballet Slippers—a live record pieced together from four Merriweather Post Pavilion-era sets.

The band was meant to head out on a European tour in support of Time Skiffs next month, but had to cancel the trek due to everything from “inflation, to currency devaluation, to bloated shipping and transportation costs, and much much more,” they said. In May, they had to call off a number of concerts after Avey Tare and Deakin tested positive for COVID-19.
