Kinks for Sunday afternoon

The Sunday after next, Ray Davies is going to follow in the steps of Prince by giving out free copies of his new album with a Sunday paper. This time, it's The Sunday Times, and Ray is excited:

"Personally, it's about reaching as many people as possible. I'm incredibly proud of this LP and am truly excited that 1.5 million copies will be distributed to people who'll hear it organically - the way it was intended."

Well, up to a point: 1.5 million copies will be distributed, to people, some of whom might actually even remove it from the sleeve.

We're not entirely sure how one listens to a record "organically" - with a potato strapped to each ear, perhaps?
