Gotta love an act that thinks outside the box – and it seems that’s precisely what Operator Please is doing with their upcoming album ‘Gloves’. The album’s due into stores on April 23 and the band and their record company EMI are popping it out in three different formats. But it’s the deluxe and premium editions that we’re having babies over ’cause along with the (signed) CD album, you’re also getting your hands on a genuine cassette tape! Yes, a real live actual cassette tape. With music on it. And tape inside! A mixtape no less. Of remixes and demos. On cassette. Gad-zoots!
We don’t quite know what Gen Y is going to make of all this – after all, they’ve probably never even seen one of the things.
Could this begin a resurgence of the format? Will JB Hifi start stocking Cassingles again? Will we all start making mixtapes for our friends? Who can say…
While you’re pondering all this cassetterrificness, check out the OPERATOR PLEASE WEBSITE to pre-order or get yourself a free download of their new single ‘Logic’.
