Tool’s New Album Comes With An HD Screen And Speaker
For those of you who have been hiding in a cave on Neptune, Tool are about to release their new album. Thirteen years in the making, the follow-up to 10,000 Days is almost upon us. Titled Fear Inoculum, it will be released on August 30 and is actually available for pre-order right now. That’s how real the new Tool album is.
But what do you actually get with it? We know Tool aren’t shy of experimenting with physical products – their last album came with a pair of stereoscopic glasses that revealed a 3D version of the album sleeve. So how do you beat that? With a high-definition screen and speaker!
As well as being available on streaming services, Tool are releasing a limited-edition deluxe CD version of Fear Inoculum – conceived and directed by guitarist Adam Jones. The tri-fold soft pack edition features a 4″ HD rechargable screen with exclusive video footage, a 2‑watt speaker, a charging cable and a 36 page booklet.
Interestingly, the CD comes with 79 minutes of music but the included MP3 download card has 89 minutes of music. What is the extra 10 minutes?!
Tool released the title track from their upcoming fifth album earlier today, which you can listen to below.
Tool’s new album Fear Inoculum is released August 30 via Music For Nations/Sony Music.
