Bloc Party released their new album "Intimacy" on their website a few days ago, almost 2 months before it is released in stores on October 27th in the UK (US - 10/28). In their first live webchat with fans a week ago they announced that they would follow in the footsteps of bands like Radiohead and release their album online first. After listening to the new tracks posted on their myspace page, I'm excited to check out the whole album and see if I can find my new favourite BP track (it's Flux, btw)
The album is available in mp3 format for £5 ($10) or £10 ($20) for both the digital and CD copy, which will be delivered in October and features extra tracks. Buy it here now.
For a taster, check out the whacked out video for new single "Mercury"...scary!
