Jet - Shaka Rock: Wikipedia Album Entry
In an interview with MTV's Ruby Rose on Channel 10's 7pm Project, it was said two unnamed tracks were recorded in Australia, one in Melbourne and one in Sydney.
The album was posted on August 20, 2009 on the band's MySpace page.
The record has been made 'Entertainment Weekly's Picks of The Week' for August the 23rd.
The band have been in the studio since 2008 working on the album. After touring was completed for their previous album, Shine On, the band took a short break. The album was originally thought to be released in late 2008 but a secret show was played in Melbourne in December 2008 only to debut new material. Various tracks that will be featured on the album were played at this concert including the first single "She's a Genius".
The track "K.I.A (Killed in Action)" was added to Jet's website in early April 2009. Altsounds.com first reported on the album in late April 2009 - drawing on information from the leaked press kit and providing the image of the album cover.
Although not confirmed as an official single, the song "K.I.A. (Killed in Action)" was uploaded to the band's official website. The first single from the album was confirmed to be the track "She's a Genius", which went to radio on 22 June and was available for free download at AOL Music on the same day for 24 hours.
