[photogallerylink id=55473 align=left] [lastfm]Cake[/lastfm] is releasing their new album,Showroom of Compassion, tomorrow, but you can already stream the whole album for free right here. It’s the first album since their 2004 release Pressure Chief, the last album the band recorded for their former label, Columbia. Part of the reason [lastfm]Cake[/lastfm] took so long to release the album is that the band produced and even did all the engineering for the record themselves.
[lastfm]Cake[/lastfm]‘s John McCrae added in an interview with Rolling Stone,”Also, we had our most democratic style process for this album. It involves a lot of great ideas, but democracy is slow. Something things grind to a stop when we don’t agree. When that happened we took a deep breath and moved onto another song, so we have more songs for another album — if we do release another album”
Even though their album goes on sale tomorrow,[lastfm]Cake[/lastfm] is still offering a pretty cool pre-sale package for $35, which includes both a Vinyl LP and a digital download of the new album, a 7″ Vinyl single and instant mp3 download of “Sick of You” and a [lastfm]Cake[/lastfm] t-shirt.
