A .pdf document uploaded to Archive.org outlines Dean Blunt's new album, out today.

03.11.14

In lieu of traditional promo for his new album 'Black Metal', Dean Blunt has uploaded the 'text' of the album – a .pdf document on Archive.org.

Lots of things in here, including 'excuses for when your album flops':

“My album was under shipped.”
“My album leaked.”
“I made this album for myself.”
“My label failed to properly promote my album to an urban demographic.”
“My fans don’t want to hear me grow musically.”
“My album will gradually sell more over time.”
“My album was only sold by select retailers.”
“My album wasn’t as good as the last one”
“My fans aren’t supporting me at SoundScan.”
“I don’t care about record sales."

The text ends with a photo of Mike Tyson, circa 2000, at a bar in South London wearing a white England kit.
