Just a day after offering up a free download from their new album, the reunited Dead Can Dance — co-founders Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard — are now putting it all out there, offering a full stream of the eight-track Anastasis, the duo’s first new album in 16 years, seven weeks before its release in a variety of digital and physical formats.
The album, to be shipped to arrive on or before Aug. 13, can be pre-ordered directly from the band on CD, in standard or lossless digital formats and as a heavyweight, 180-gram, 2LP clear-vinyl set. Additionally, there are two special edition “hardbound box set” options with special artwork and the album on CD, digital and, depending on which option, vinyl formats as well. The latter two sets are priced at £39.99 ($59.99) and £54.99 ($84.99).
UPDATE 6/28/12: Yes, it appears Dead Can Dance has replaced the full-album stream with a stream that only features the “Amnesia” radio edit, which also is available as a free download here.
UPDATE 8/7/12: The album is once again streaming, via the player below.
Tracklist: Dead Can Dance, Anastasis
1. “Children of the Sun”
7. “Return of the She-King”
8. “All in Good Time”
