Shout Out Louds release single made from ice
Shout Out Louds have released a record made from ice.

The Swedish band's new single, 'Blue Ice', is being put out in 10 limited edition kits which can be frozen and made into functional 'vinyl' which can be played on a record player.

io9 reports that the ice single has been made in conjunction with ad agency TBWA Stockholm.

They told Co.Design: "One of the biggest challenges was that the bubbles made the ice cloudy and messed up the tiny tracks, which made the needle jump."

Apparently distilled water gave the best result – "giving the final product a nice clarity and even surface".

They also used a silicone mould for "quick and easy record removal".

'Blue Ice' comes from the Shout Out Louds fourth album, 'Optica', which is due for release on February 26, 2013. 'Optica' follows their previous album, 'Work', which was released in 2010.
