Brand New release new album ‘Science Fiction,’ after mailing mysterious CDs
Brand New launched a "very limited" vinyl pre-order earlier this week, which sold out quickly. Now, apparently 500 fans who pre-ordered it received a mysterious CD with one hour-long track that a Reddit user says is titled "44.5902N104.7146W." The Brand New Archive Twitter is saying that the album is called Science Fiction, and that's the artwork above. Shazam is apparently bringing up song names for the album, including "Out of Mana," "In The Water," "Desert," "451," and "No Control."
The Brand New Fans Twitter adds, "MORE DETAILS: mailed yesterday; track name is coordinates for Devil's Tower; redditor says it's 'new music...studio recorded.' Haven't finished listening yet, but it's all collapsed into a single track on this current CD, but there are obvious different tracks."
UPDATE: We still don't know all the exact details on the album, but we can confirm that the CD they sent out is indeed a full album with (instantly awesome sounding) new Brand New music.
UPDATE 2: It's official. The album is called Science Fiction and it's OUT NOW. You can order it on vinyl, CD or digital at the Procrastinate! Music Traitors webstore. That is the artwork above above and you can see the tracklist below. It was produced by their longtime collaborator Mike Sapone.
UPDATE 3: You can stream it HERE.
Here's a closer look at that CD:
1. Lit Me Up
2. Can't Get It Out
4. Could Never Be Heaven
5. Same Logic/Teeth
7. Out of Mana
8. In the Water
10. No Control
12. Batter Up
