Serengeti "With Greg From Deerhoof"

Serengeti (David Cohn) announced this week that he will be releasing a new album tomorrow, October 29th, via Joyful Noise called With Greg From Deerhoof. This project began by chance back in 2018 when Cohen and Greg Saunier of Deerhoof signed up for the same recording time slot at a residency in Berlin. They recorded "I Got Your Password" that day, and back in April Saunier sent Cohn that recording. They both liked how the track sounded and decided to make an album together.

The album's first two singles, "Wasps" & "Premiere" are out now, and With Greg From Deerhoof is out October 29th.
