Unlock the mystery of Plaid's new album on interactive website

SoundCloud streams are basic AF. Always forward-thinking British electronic duo Plaid are back with a new album, and lead single “Clock” is available on a mysterious “interactive site,” where visitors are encouraged to “unlock” it. Intimidating. Will visitors be trapped in a virtual reality room, forced to solve brainteasers with the assistance of strangers? Confronted by a tiny yet imposing troll who will demand they solve riddles and/or give him your social security numbers? Anyway, it’s probably not as mystical as all that, but if the thought of going on a vision quest to hear a cool dance track scares you, the full album, The Digging Remedy is out June 10 via Warp.

The website is a collaboration with digital artist Cabbibo, who does not appear to be a diminutive under-bridge-dweller, but who could be a mythical creature — who’s to say. Plaid is playing Cuba and The Netherlands this month, with probably (again, who’s to say?!) more dates to come.
