The group’s box set intends to chronicle the works of the band from the years 2001 to 2011. A press release from the band explains that the box set sets out to document the group’s experimentation, especially in regards to their fusions of rock and dance music, as well as their incorporations of Afrobeat, dub and other styles. Also included within the set will be a 72 page zine from the group’s frontman, Dan Whitman, as well as a holographic cover for the box set. The set will be released on March 18, roughly a month into their tour in North America.
Whitman explains that “2001-2011 feels like a special time period for Cut Copy. It charts the move from me first signing to a record label as a naive young kid who made music in my bedroom to a fully fledged band that forged its own musical fingerprint, created some globally loved albums and toured the world,” going on to state that the years chronicled by the set feel like a musical journey to him and the group.
Cut Copy’s last studio album, Freeze Melt, was released in August of 2020.
