Dirty Projectors to Release Bitte Orca on Limited-Edition Cassette, Really

    With the release of their new album Bitte Orca only a month or so away, Dirty Projectors are using the album’s release to tap into a nostalgia that might not actually exist. They’re revisiting the gone-and-kind-of-forgotten days of cassettes. That’s right, along with CD and vinyl formats, Bitte Orca will be available as a limited-edition cassette tape, available only at the Domino online store. And since there is no iPhone app that will play cassettes (yet), the tape will include a free MP3 download of the album so you can, you know, listen to it. No word yet on an 8-track release for the album. But you never know.

     

    Bitte Orca is out June 8 in the UK and June 9 in North America on Domino.
