Cut Copy have grown to become an international festival staple that have thousands enamored by their eclectic live performances and music. Announced today, October 11, their fourth album, Free Your Mind, will debut on November 5 via Loma Vista/Modular Records. The album is the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated Zonoscope, and was recorded in the band's hometown of Melbourne, Australia. The album was also produced by Cut Copy frontman Dan Whitford.
The record was heavily influenced by the two "Summers of Love," which were burdening times; Vietnam and 10 years of Thatcher's reign. "Through unprecedented explosions of youth culture, communal elation and celebration, these eras provided a spirit that the band embraced – the need to tear down the walls of perception while creating a fantasy of what the next youth revolution might sound like. The title track would be a worthy soundtrack to that movement, with its propulsive bass line and soaring vocals urging you to “Free Your Mind” and make the world what you want it to be."
Cut Copy’s will release the Free Your Mind single package October 15th (US), which features remixes by Fort Romeau and Spiritualized. The band’s fourth studio album, titled Free Your Mind, will be released worldwide this November. The album is now available for pre-order via iTunes. Pre-order comes with an instant download of the ‘Free Your Mind’ single.
