Boards of Canada debut new album from two speakers in middle of Californian desert

Band host unusual album playback for 'Tomorrow's Harvest'

Boards Of Canada have hosted an unusual album playback for their new record ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’, setting up two speakers in the middle of the desert and giving fans co-ordinates to find the music for themselves.

The band, who debuted new track ‘Cold Earth’ at Detroit’s Movement Festival on Monday (May 26), hinted that something would happen after posting an image on Twitter yesterday indicating they had plans for 5pm US Pacific Time. Consequence of Sound reports that the band tweeted the coordinates to a location in Yermo, California with around 60 fans arriving to hear the album. The fans have subsequently posted on Reddit, and the band’s message board Twoism, that ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ is being played in full from a pair of speakers set up next to a trailer. Vine footage shot at the playback can be seen below.

Last week, Boards Of Canada unveiled a brand new song titled ‘Reach For The Dead’. The Neil Krug-directed film that accompanies the music, which was taken from their first new album in eight years, was first broadcast in Shibuya, Tokyo, projected against the side of a building to a large crowd. The reclusive duo will put out their new LP ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ on June 10 via Warp Records. The album will consist of 17 tracks. Scroll down for the full tracklisting.
