Boards Of Canada reunion album Tomorrow’s Harvest suddenly available for pre-order

It isn’t exactly a shock to see news of a new Boards Of Canada album, not after they snuck out a handful of copies (literally) of a surprise single for Record Store Day a week ago for very lucky buyers to stumble upon. But news that it’s available to order today has stirred up IDM fans and brought one retailer’s online store to its knees.

Fans of the band’s brand of dreamy, warbly instrumental music have patiently waited for 7 years for anything new from the band. The single, with the catchy title of “——/——/——/xxxxxx/——/——“, contained a short bit of music and a voice reading digits, which turned out to be one set of the dashes in that title. The other numbers were broadcast on radio or hidden on websites, and thankfully others found those otherwise who knows, we might still be waiting to find out that the group had a new album titled Tomorrow’s Harvest due soon. (That’s sarcasm, folks.)

If you’re itching to play along, you too can plug in the no-longer-secret code 699742628315717228936557813386519225 at Boards Of Canada’s site, http://cosecha-transmisiones.com/. (And, seriously, you have to manually enter that code. No copy/pasting here. Type type type.) For the impatient: it’s five minutes of garbled-transmission video and warbly, slo-mo synths followed by a link to pre-order.

Tomorrow’s Harvest will be available on June 11, and Warp Records’ Bleep is taking preorders now. However, demand has crushed their servers and they’ve been reduced to allowing buyers in every 15 minutes. To say fans are excited is putting it mildly.
