New Bloc Party album gets closer

The third Bloc Party album - that legendarily difficult third album - is about to be live. It's called Intimacy, and while you have to wait until the back end of October if you want a physical copy, it's being sold from blocparty.com from Thursday.

Yes. This Thursday.

That's quite a gap between download and physical release, you'll have noted. If you pre-order a physical CD through the official site, you get a comped digital version - so, effectively, you've got the chance to have both sort-of simultaneously. In it's way, this is every bit as interesting as the In Rainbows experiment.
