Australian dance-pop band Cut Copy dropped January, a cassette tape of ambient instrumental music. This marks the group's first release in more than three years. In 2013, the band released their fourth album Free Your Mind.

January is a 44-minute collection of unedited material recorded during 10 days spent in their studio. "Instead of retreating to the wilderness or decompressing on a beach somewhere, we spent ten days in the studio making a collection of ambient instrumental works," the group said.

On the page announcing the cassette tape, the group also revealed details about their upcoming full-length album. Band members Dan Whitford and Tim Hoey said they have spent the past year working on a new album. There is no word on when the new album will be released.

Only 400 cassettes are available for purchase. Grab your copy of January here. In 2013, we interviewed Cut Copy for our show Supersonic.
