Kaiser Chiefs Release Surprise New Album

Surprise! Kaiser Chiefs released their unexpected fourth studio album, The Future is Medieval today on their website. The album comes less than a week after the band released a video for single “Little Shocks.

The way the group is choosing to sell the album is wildly different. They are providing fans with 20 songs to choose from. Listeners can select their favorite 10 to put on their own version of the album, and they also get the opportunity to design the cover. Upon completion, purchasers will get their own web page from which to sell their version of the album. The Kaiser Chiefs will give £1 (or $1.63) to fans for each album that they sell.

New music that’s profitable for the band and the fans? Sounds pretty awesome to us.
