New Bloc Party album out Thursday 24th!

Another band doing a surprise album release. Let's hope Mercury's the ginger headed step child of the album.


Quote:
Bloc Party's third album, 'Intimacy' will be available August 21. It can be pre-ordered now via the band's website: http://www.blocparty.com.

The album will also be available as a CD which will be delivered from October 27 and feature additional songs. Anyone pre-ordering the CD will also receive the digital album from August 21.

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 18. The album follows on from the release of their hit single 'Mercury' released on 11 August.

The album produced by Paul Epworth (Silent Alarm) and Jacknife Lee (A Weekend in the City) was recorded in Kent and London. Some songs are Bloc Party at their most wildly experimental, while other tracks are simply classic Bloc Party, fitting in seamlessly amongst fan-favourites 'Helicopter', 'Banquet' and 'So Here We Are'.

The track listing for Intimacy:

01. Ares
02. Mercury
03. Halo
04. Biko
05. Trojan Horse
06. Signs
07. One Month Off
08. Zephyrus
09. Better Than Heaven
10. Ion Square

Pre-ordered (obviously, I can't say no to them. Ever )

The blurb makes it sound a bit promising. The less Mercury-esque the album is, the better!!! Wonder what the bonus tracks will be on the cd?

I like Mercury a lot more than the one-off single before it but nowhere near enough to buy the album unless there are a load of good tracks coming off it. Maybe if it appears on E Music I'll grab a copy...

Can't believe thaty if you buy the CD from the site they still have the cheek to charge you another £2 for the download.

My Mercury's is retrograde about that.

Totally gone off them after the last offering. Debut album was quality but just didn't get on with the last one and they are now off the list.

Apparently it's an astrological reference...

You get extra tracks on the CD. So it's not so bad.

You've bought the CD, though, so why should you have to pay extra for the download? Or did you mean extra tracks on the download?

Everybody else seems fine giving you free mp3's if you buy the CD. (or in the case of the new 'Of Montreal' record t-Shirt or lamp shade.)

Great live act....

Live Lounge on Radio 1....what a performance...for all the wrong reasons, gives hope to all non musicians all across the world.

Little know fact, Hard to Beat was the first track I downloaded via iTunes
