Cut Copy are kicking off 2022 with a bang – they’r celebrating their first few releases with a limited-edition vinyl box set. Titled Cut Copy: Collected Works 2001-2011, the limited-edition 6LP product is a fitting celebration of the lauded Australian export and their catalogue.
The repressed records are on limited-edition colours, and the box set features a 72-page zine curated by Dan, a holographic box set cover, and features 1981 and I Thought Of Numbers on vinyl in full for the first time ever.
On this project, Dan said that “for me, the 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. Within Cut Copy’s evolution, the arc of these first ten years felt like a special musical journey. For Tim, Mitchell, Ben and I, every tour was a new discovery, and every record was a new development, each with its own very unique visual and musical identity. Sadly those early albums are long out of print (only available second hand at astronomical prices). So for this reason we decided it was time to create a vinyl box set covering the first ten years of Cut Copy.
I designed the artwork for the box as well as putting together a zine booklet that goes along with it, with old photos, setlists, notes and other memorabilia from the early days. We also compiled a bonus disc containing rare early releases ‘I Thought of Numbers’ and ‘1981. ’Hopefully the box is a special treat for our longtime fans and also new ones wanting to discover this era of our music for the first time.”
