I have heard the future and it is horrible: The Chap condense new album to under four minutes, release as free preview to longer, more boring version

To tease the hearts of buzzy experimental pop fans who rabidly await the release of their fourth album, Well Done Europe, The Chap have used technology brought from the future, in a time machine, to condense the entire album down to three minutes and twenty-nine seconds. But why make this version a preview? Why release the long version at all? Will we really have time for long music in the future?

And why stop there? If you can condense one album to the length of a song, I want an album in which all of the songs are albums. Do you hear me, future? I want a pogo stick that never tips over and a horse with a British accent. I want music that makes time last longer.

Listen to the condensed LP, courtesy of Bandcamp. It’s definitely worth the time. Then check out the condensed lyrics here.

Well Done Europe arrives July 6 (May 24 in Europe) through Lo Recordings, and is available in a deluxe edition that includes an entire meal in a pill and a car that is also a pill.
