The most recent Cut Copy album was 2013’s Free Your Mind, but the Australian band have been hard at work on a follow-up over the last year. Before we get to hear that, however, the band has made a 44-minute ambient instrumental piece dubbed the January Tape. It’s being issued on a limited-edition cassette tape, which you can purchase on their official website. Unless you get the tape, you can only hear a short preview of the January Tape right now, also available on their website. Here’s what the band’s Dan Whitford had to say about the new tape in a press release:
Having worked for much of the previous 12 months on a new Cut Copy album, we decided this January it was time to give ourselves a well earned break. But instead of retreating to the wilderness or decompressing on a beach somewhere, we spent ten days in the studio making a collection of ambient instrumental works. We wanted to share outtakes from these sessions in all their unedited glory with you, and put them out as an extremely limited edition cassette, available mainly through our webstores (though you may see a copy or two floating around in the wild).
The January Tape is available via Cutters Records.
