Animal Logic Share First New Music In 31 Years
Animal Logic — jazz bassist Stanley Clarke, ex-Police drummer Stewart Copeland, and singer-songwriter Deborah Holland — only ever released two albums after forming in 1987: 1989’s self-titled and 1991’s Animal Logic II. The trio kept in touch over the years, notably reuniting in 2013 when they performed as part of Copeland’s Sacred Grove YouTube series. In 2020, Holland confirmed that Animal Logic has been working on material for a new EP, saying: “We’re in the process of finishing up five songs though the bulk of the work is now on Stanley’s shoulders and he has a crazy schedule so it may take a while.”
That all leads up to last month when the trio announced plans to release their first new songs in 31 years: “Can You Tell Me,” which features Howard Levy from Bela Fleck And The Flecktones on harmonica, and “Ordinary.” Both are out now — listen to “Can You Tell Me” and “Ordinary” below.
