Noah And The Whale to send fans on treasure hunt for new album
Cassette copies of 'Heart Of Nowhere' will be hidden in six UK record stores
On May 1 the band will be delivering six parcels to six UK record stores. The parcels will contain a cassette tape copy of 'Heart Of Nowhere' – which will be officially released on May 6.
The parcels will also contain a code to unlock a full album stream on the band's website at Noahandthewhale.com. The stream will become available when all six packages have been found and their codes entered online.
Fans will need to follow the band on Twitter at @Noahandthewhale to get clues about the locations of the record stores. Use the hashtag #UnlockHeartOfNowhere to help with the hunt.
The band have said: "We'll be releasing information over the next few days to help you work out the location of the stores. Each store only has one parcel. It will be handed over by the staff on a first come first served basis on Wednesday."
Noah And The Whale recently unveiled their new album's title track, which features vocals from Anna Calvi. Scroll down to listen.
