Surprise! Four Tet’s new album, Beautiful Rewind, which did not have a release date, will apparently arrive in some UK stores today. And it is now streaming in full on Soundcloud. A few months ago Kieran Hebden tweeted:
the album is all done and just getting some copies made and then will get it into the shops for you. LP, CD and internet versions. deluxe sendspace edition with art print and unique numbered download code. no pre order, no youtube trailers, no itunes stream, no spotify, no amazon deal, no charts, no bit coin deal, no last minute rick rubin. I’ve got distribution sorted in North America now… going to be easy to get there at decent price.
The U.S. vinyl comes with a download code, but the U.K. does not. “If you buy the vinyl and you’re pissed about no code,” he he says, “then just grab it from mediafire or isohunt or IDM-warez or something.”
