NPR Music is offering fans an exclusive "First Listen" to Haiku From Zero in the week leading up to its Sept. 22 release. Fans can stream the album NPR declares "magnificently ambitious" in its entirety HERE through Sept. 21.
Haiku From Zero - Cut Copy's first proper studio album in nearly four years and first for Astralwerks - was produced by Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, Neon Indian).
A 7" of "Standing in the Middle of the Field" featuring an exclusive, unreleased b-side will be available to those who pre-order the vinyl edition of Haiku From Zero at select U.S. record stores. To find a participating store, visit https://CutCopy.lnk.to/StoreFinder. Cut Copy also shared a remix "Standing in the Middle of the Field" by Ara Koufax; listen on SoundCloud HERE.
Cut Copy will support Haiku From Zero with a North American headline tour that kicks off in November in Santa Cruz, CA. The run will include a November 24 show at Terminal 5 in New York City. See below for itinerary. Tickets are available at http://cutcopy.net/tour/. Prior to the tour's launch, Cut Copy will perform at several U.S. festivals, including CRSSD and Austin City Limits.
Initially a bedroom recording project by Whitford, Cut Copy evolved into a full-fledged band with guitarist Tim Hoey, drummer Mitchell Scott, and bass player Ben Browning. The quartet's studio albums also include In Ghost Colours and 2011's Zonoscope, which won two ARIA Awards and was nominated for a GRAMMY.
The band's songs have been licensed for use in television, games and commercials, including FIFA 18, Chevrolet, Netflix, Amazon and Levi's® #LiveinLevis campaign. DJing and mixes have also been a big part of Cut Copy's identity - from the band's famed Fabric mix, Fabriclive.29, to the 2014 Melbourne dance compilation, Oceans Apart.
In addition to headlining massive sold-out shows, the band has gained prime slots at prestigious festivals such as Coachella, Ultra and Lollapalooza in the U.S.; Primavera in Spain, Pitchfork in Paris; Summer Sonic in Japan; and Big Day Out in Australia.
