In a move which is now known as ‘doing a Radiohead’, Bloc Party are rush-releasing their third album online this Thursday (August 21).

“Intimacy” can be ordered now from www.blocparty.com. As with “In Rainbows”, a limited edition CD with extra tracks can also be pre-ordered and will be delivered from October 27. If you order the CD now, you’ll get the download on Thursday.

Intimacy appears to have been produced by Paul Epworth and Jacknife Lee, who worked on Bloc Party’s first and second albums respectively. It features the recent “Mercury” single and nine other tracks:

1) Ares

2) Mercury

3) Halo

4) Biko

5 Trojan Horse

6) Signs

7) One month Off

8) Zephyrus

9) Better Than Heaven

10) Ion Square

Bloc Party may well showcase these songs at a bunch of festival shows in the next week or two:

August 23 Reading Festival

August 24 Leeds Festival

August 30 Scotland Connect Festival

Or perhaps they’ve already moved on to some other stuff. . .
