Boards Of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest

Just nine days ago, evidence of a new album from Scottish chill-out producers Boards Of Canada, who have been silent for the seven years since 2006′s Trans Canada Highway EP, existed only in the form of cryptic hints, mostly-silent 12″ singles distributed across the globe on Record Store Day. Since then, there have been further clues and a commercial on the Cartoon Network. And now the duo has come out an dropped the subterfuge, announcing that they’ll release Tomorrow’s Harvest, their fourth album, in a mere two months. Check out the tracklist below.

    The number sequence they’ve been hinting at is the password.

    So I was right about the June release date at least!

  2. Ive been watching this video for a minute now, at what point does the woman with the long black hair crawl out of the well and kill me? Hold on, my phone is ringing……

  3. Cancel my 3 o’clock, Helen. I’m off to the Masturbatorium.

  4. so basically so whole mystery is a the golden key to… pre-order?

  5. Jesus, Geogaddi. What an album. You can really go down the rabbit hole on that one. Years ago when I was getting into it, I was reading up in forums on all of the number theories and Satanism in the samples, etc. I can’t remember any of the details today but still whenever I listen to that album it creeps me the fuck out. Gyroscope, The Devil is in the Details, A Is To B As B Is To C. I seriously can’t listen to those songs alone late at night.

  6. Any other BoC fans find it weird that they’re not releasing it right on June 9th?

  7. Now if I could just get a double bill of BoC and Casino Versus Japan at Red Rocks….

  8. BoC is great, but Tomorrow’s Harvest with a pic of what looks like a nuked San Francisco? A bit unnerving

  9. One of those rare bands that never make a band song. Can’t help but listen to the older albums waiting for this one to come out. For me, its the only album I will burying myself in for a couple months. Anyone else feels like this will take over there summer?

    • Really? I’m a HUGE fan. I bought (and still own) the original ‘High Scores’ EP on Skam back in 96 because I bought everything on Skam back then assuming it would have something to do with AE. I loved everything BoC did passionately, until ‘The Campfire Headphase’. That album was a huge letdown for me. I’m really hoping ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ is a return to form.

      Also, I hope all these years off got them further along the path to figuring out how to release (and re-release) all the unreleased tracks and early stuff.
