Bloc Party will release their new album in three days time (August 21) – but you’ll be able to hear a new song from the record exclusive on NME.COM from Tuesday (19) afternoon.
The band announced the shock release during a webchat with fans on blocparty.com today (August 18).
NME.COM can exclusively reveal that ‘Intimacy’, the band’s third album, is available to pre-order on CD and mp3 from Blocparty.com now.
Fans can choose whether to pay either £5 for a high-quality mp3 bundle (to be delivered on August 21), £8 for a CD (to be delivered on October 27), or £10 for a combined order of both CD and mp3 bundle.
‘Intimacy’ was recorded in two separate sessions, as the band chose to work with both Paul Epworth and Jacknife Lee on the record.
The CD release of ‘Intimacy’ will include additional tracks unavailable on the mp3 bundle release.
The tracklisting for ‘Intimacy’ will be:
‘One Month Off’
‘Better Than Heaven’
