Grammy-nominated Cut Copy have released the deluxe version of their latest album 'Free Your Mind' today, coinciding with a busy schedule of international summer festivals and tour dates.
This new version features five additional tracks: 'In These Arms of Love' and 'Like Any Other Day' (both previously only available as a US-only Record Store Day vinyl release), and three previously unheard songs - 'Believers', 'I Wish the Sun Would Grow Today' and 'Lights Shine On'. All the songs were recorded by the band in Australia and mixed by producer Dave Fridmann during the 'Free Your Mind' sessions, and is available for purchase at all digital retailers (get it from iTunes with one click of a button).
After winning over US fans during their select shows last month, Movement have made quick plans to return for a more extensive run in support of Twin Shadow's synth-pop. Catch this epic double bill in a city near you this September/October.

Rising Australian dance faves RÜFÜS have the first crack at remixing The Presets' techno decadence 'No Fun'. Taking the intensity a few notches down, the group recreate a profound club moment with beautiful colour washes.
The 'No Fun' remix package drops 1 August (AUS) / 4 August (UK) / 5 August (US) and will also feature reinterpretations from Australian house star Lancelot, Montreal Mau5trap signing Eekkoo, Belfast techno maestro Phil Kieran and new UK outfit Wax Wings.
Bag Raiders' 'Nairobi / Savannah' EP is out now worldwide. Featuring the first new music from the duo in 3 years, the club-minded EP circles back to those dynamic dancefloor tracks that first put them on the map.
They've shared this raw energy with two remix producers - Zombie Disco Squad and Roland Tings - who dismantle the existing stems and really make it their own. You can grab a free download of Melbourne lab rat Roland Tings' deep sea 'Savannah' descent via XLR8R.
With love pouring in from Spin, Mixmag, Dancing Astronaut, Do Androids Dance, Less Than 3, and many more fine folk, and a forthcoming release on the horizon, 2014 is shaping up to be a good year for Bag Raiders. Stay tuned for more new music from the duo soon.
Get the Nairobi / Savannah EP here.
Cut Copy took some time out from their Summer of Festivals today to premiere a brand new track 'Lights Shine On' via Stereogum. Conceived and recorded during the 'Free Your Mind' sessions, it brings a heady anthemic throb to the giddy balearics of the record.
It's taken from the forthcoming Deluxe Edition of 'Free Your Mind', which features five new tracks (three previously unreleased) and is out digitally on July 18 (Aus) / 21 (UK) / 22 (US). You can preorder it now.
Right after its release, the band embark on wave 2 of their Summer of Festivals including dates at Pukkelpop, Rock en Seine and a host of US shows. Full details at cutcopy.com
Look behind the development and inspiration of The Presets and Googeplay's inventive 'No Fun' Cube.
If you're yet to play with it, the Cube displays six full-length music videos across the hexahedron surfaces, each with individual narratives, allowing you to twist, turn and manipulate your own unique audiovisual interpretation of 'No Fun' in real time. The video was directed by Barnaby Roper (Banks, David Bowie, Kanye West) and can be viewed here.
'No Fun' is now available on iTunes worldwide.
This remix comes as part of the forthcoming club EP Nairobi / Savannah, out tomorrow (July 4) AUS, July 7 UK/EU, July 8 USA.
The Presets return with 'No Fun', a new single of pulsating, itchy dance, which comes with an incredible video - the world's first 6-sided, interactive music video, called the 'Cube'.
An experiment in storytelling from Google Play, the 'Cube' allows six full-length music videos, each with their own distinct narrative, to run on six sides of the 'Cube', allowing you to twist, turn and manipulate your own unique audiovisual experience of 'No Fun' in real time. The video was directed by Barnaby Roper (Banks, David Bowie, Kanye West) and can be viewed and embedded via the below link.
Sydney dancefloor dreamweaver Beni drops a new track in the form of Protect. From the forthcoming Protect / Can't Hide EP (out July 11th Aus / 14th UK on Modular), the lead track features vocals by Antony & Cleopatra, the duo of Londoner Anita Blay and Alexander Burnett, known for his writing with Flight Facilities and Digitalism.
Following the recent premiere of their first new music in 3 years, Nairobi, Bag Raiders are sharing the second track from their forthcoming club-ready EP - Savannah.
