A digital compilation of entirely new work from regular members of the Ghost Box roster and some special guests. It combines preview tracks from forthcoming releases and material especially recorded for the compilation during the global lockdown. Ghost Box releases never have much to say about quotidian reality but these responses to the situation have seeped through from the Intermission in the universe next door.
The version available here in the Ghost Box shop has a slight variation to the artwork and the proceeds will go to Médecins Sans Frontières. The choice is yours, you can either support a charity by buying right here in the Ghost Box shop or supporting the musicians via your prefered commercial downloads and streams.
Available now (although… this has been fast tracked so it may not be available today in all download stores, if not it’s on the way in a day or two).
“The return of these Birmingham-based godfathers of retrofuturist fun is cause for celebration itself, and the album is overflowing with grin-inducing melodies.”
“Songs repeatedly move and evolve in novel and increasingly quirky ways. You get the sense that returning to this project has provided them with the opportunity to be playful and fun loving, to tap back into their inner child.”
Ghost Box records, CDs and merchandise are available in our shop once again . There’s only a small, part time team working at the moment so orders will take a little longer than usual to process. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any enquiries about orders.
Some good news, our incredible distributors at state51 have been hard at work to create safe, practical working conditions so that they can get their warehouse up and running again.
This means we can now open pre-orders for CD, LP and Colour Vinyl versions of the new album by Plone, Puzzlewood. Obviously no one can guarantee exact shipping or delivery dates at present but they will be doing their utmost to get pre-orders out as near to, or just after, the release date of 17th April as postal services allow. The orange vinyl might well sell out quickly in pre-order but we’ll be keeping a small quantity of CDs and regular LPs back to sell on 17th.
Also please don’t worry if you’ve pre-ordered elsewhere, several online stores (such as Bleep, Norman and Rough Trade) have already been taking pre-orders for a pre-allocated quantity of stock on the basis that it will get shipped whenever they can get it. This will be sooner than expected so in many cases those will probably go out more or less on time for the release date too. If you have an order query from a store other than the Ghost Box shop, please contact the relevant retailer about this, not us.
Safety of staff is paramount, so while capacity is reduced and pre-orders and back orders are sorted out, the rest of the Ghost Box physical stock will remain unavailable. Thanks for your understanding and patience and please be aware that this might all be subject to postal/courier delays and further restrictions on movement.
