Cut Copy announce new album, release “Standing in the Middle of the Field”
Cut Copy fans all around are rejoicing, because for the first time since 2014, the band is putting out a new studio album. Titled Haiku From Zero, the full album will be out September 22 on Astralwerks Records.
Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford describes the album as a reflection of “this mosaic of information, images that we’re surrounded by on a day-to-day basis.”
“Sometimes it feels like overload, but there’s a weird random beauty in it,” Whitford said. “The idea of squeezing poetry from chaos was where the title of the album came from – the idea of finding something poetic in the overload.”
The group’s philosophy is on full display on both of the albums singles, like their funky July release, “Airborne.” Their new track, “Standing in the Middle of the Field,” posits bubbly synths and wistful vocals over a steady, unrelenting beat.
Digital copies, CDs, vinyl LPs, and cassettes of Haiku From Zero are available for pre-order now and Cut Copy have also just announced a fall North American tour, available for presale on August 11 at 10 a.m. here.
