Here’s the official word:

Since 2006, Fucked Up have been releasing an annual 12” single on each Chinese New Year.Named after the beasts of the Chinese Zodiac,the sprawling, 10-15 minute-long epics have been among the band’s most acclaimed material and were the first releases to expose them to non-punk audiences.“Year Of The Tiger” is an anthemic progressive rock masterpiece featuring guests JimJarmusch, Annie-Claude Deschênes and Austra. It was produced by Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells) during the sessions for last year’s critically acclaimed rock opera David Comes To Life. The 15-minute long track features the band’s familiar layers of guitar and roaring vocals, taken to a new level with the addition of piano, Jarmusch’s dark recitations and Deschênes’s gorgeous crescendos, in this menacing but uplifting story about the predation of p r e d a t o r s .
The B-side “ONNO” is a 22-minute long palindromic drone.
