Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke releases the first 3D printed record

December 16, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, News, Video Tags: , ,

It isn’t unusual for Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke to release solo music in-between his other band-related activities. In fact he’s been recording and producing independent material for the better part of the past three years. However his most recent release, a mid-90s’ influenced dance record called “Down Boy” featuring female vocalist Bobbie Gordon, is being recognized for something especially monumental: it is the first-ever song to be printed on 3D vinyl. In addition the single is being sold to raise money for the UK music therapy charity, Nordoff Robbins.

The record will be sold at a Bacardi pop-up shop in the UK sometime this month. More info can be found on the Bacardi Facebook page. You can hear “Down Boy” below and also watch a short video of the 3D printing process above.
