Karl Bartos returns with new 'Atomium' single and 'Off the Record' album - listenPosted on 17/12/12
Out on February 1st is the new Karl Bartos single "Atomium". The single will be released as a limited 7" on the Bureau B imprint. The single is the first to be taken from the new Bartos album "Off the Record" which will be out on March 15th.
For those that don't recognize the building on the cover artwork, it's the Atomium, a gigantic model of an iron atom, erected for the 1958 World's Fair in Brussels. The 7" will hold the title track in English on the A-side and in German on the B-side.
We also have some more info on Bartos' next studio album "Off the Record". It holds 12 tracks that were recorded over the course of two years. The first run of the CD version will have an extensive 44 pages booklet.
Next to a CD version there will also be a vinyl edition in 180 gr. first quality heavy vinyl (including the CD in a cardboard sleeve). A deluxe edition of this set will be out as well strictly limited to 1000 copies. It will be coming with an over-sized, 20 pages booklet in a deluxe gatefold-cover.
Check a preview of "Atomium" right after the jump.
