New Bloc Party Album Out Thursday
As the press release goes…
Bloc Party’s third album, Intimacy, will be available 21st August. It
can be pre-ordered now via the band’s website – www.blocparty.com. The album will also be available as a limited edition CD format which will be delivered from the 27th October and feature additional songs. Anyone pre-ordering the CD will also receive the download from the 21st August.
Bloc Party alerted fans to Intimacy’s existence, as well as their ability to purchase the record instantly, when they hosted their first-ever web chat on August 18th. The album follows on from the release of their hit single Mercury released on the 11th August.
The album produced by Paul Epworth (Silent Alarm) and Jacknife Lee (A Weekend in the City) was recorded in Kent and London and mixed by Alan Moulder. Some songs are Bloc Party at their most wildly experimental, while other tracks are simply classic Bloc Party, fitting in seamlessly amongst fan-favorites “Helicopter,” “Banquet” and “So Here We Are.”
So, it has that Mercury song? Fuck, I hope it’s all not as bad as that song. God no.
