New Bloc Party album this Thursday?!

New Bloc Party Album Out Digitally on Thursday | Pitchfork

On August 21-- as in this Thursday-- Bloc Party will digitally release Intimacy, their unexpectedly imminent third full-length LP.

A physical release of Intimacy, featuring different tracks from the digital incarnation, is due October 28 from Atlantic in the U.S., and October 27 in the UK via Wichita. You can flip on over to the Bloc Party website to preorder your copy of Intimacy in whichever form you please right this instant, if you'd like. If you pre-order the physical version, you get the digital version as well.

Intimacy is being released in this increasingly more orthodox fashion to combat the kind of leakage that got A Weekend in the City out on the web many months before its eventual release. The album was produced by Silent Alarm's Paul Epworth and Weekend's Jackknife Lee and mixed by Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins), and it's being described as "wildly experimental" in parts and "simply classic Bloc Party" in others.


Intimacy:

01 Ares
02 Mercury
03 Halo
04 Biko
05 Trojan Horse
06 Signs
07 One Month Off
08 Zephyrus
09 Better Than Heaven
10 Ion Square

So when they say the physical version has different tracks, do they mean different mixes of the same tracks? 2 complete different albums? Just a couple different songs on each version? What?! Inquiring minds want to know!

Do you know what the differences in tracks between format types will be, Fitz?

I am excited I ordered the bundle with the physical CD and digital download

I guess In Rainbows really influenced the way people are releasing records now huh? What a great gift to tide me over until the new U2!!

Surely they'll tour soon to promote the new album?

Yeah, I suppose it was just a couple weeks ago that I saw them in Chicago at Lolla. But I hope they add more tour dates!

Nope. Sorry, I don't. But the e-mail I got from "Pioneers" this morning stated that the cd would have "new" tracks. So maybe it will just be like 1, 2 or 3 bonus tracks to the 10 already listed. They have done that before. I believe they released a few different versions of "A Weekend In The City" for different international markets.

At the end of the New York, Webster Hall show Kele said: "This is the last night of our tour. Thank you for making it our best tour ever. And don't worry, you will be seeing us a lot sooner than you might imagine."

That statement bodes well to me for a full-blown "Intimacy" tour!

That would make sense. Let us know if you hear a clarification to this.

I will need to preorder this sucker tonight or tomorrow so I can get the download and the CD for the price of just the CD.

I really like that bands are starting do this sort of thing, makes the entire thing as fun as it used to be back in the day pre-internet leaks.

Good. Good news.

Let's hope this is better than the dismally disappointing Weekend in the Shitty.

I think I'll listen to some Silent Alarm tonight in celebration.

New Musics FTW.
