Brand New unexpectedly dropped their first new album in 8 years entitled Science Fiction last Thursday. Vinyl pre-orders for the album mysteriously appeared via Instagram early last Tuesday. The first 500 people to pre-order the album on vinyl were overnighted a copy on a 61 minute single-track CD-R. Redditors immediately blew up the Brand New subreddit with track names and artwork they had stumbled upon by using the app Shazam. There’s been a lot of speculation that this will be the band’s last album. If so, it’s a perfect ending.
You can buy the new album on the Procrastinate! Music Traitors site here.
You can also stream the album on Spotify and Apple Music.
Trent Reznor and company played their first show in 3 years on Wednesday in Bakersfield, CA. During their set they covered Bowie’s Blackstar track “I Can’t Give Everything Away”. Check it out below:
Trent Reznor’s remix actually showed up on a random Soundcloud account back in January. You can listen to it here:
