Matthew Dear’s Black City officially arrives on August 17th, 2010. However, pre-ordering Black City now at iTunes or The Ghostly Store (at a limited-time sale price) gets you the manic disco odyssey “Little People (Black City)” at purchase, as well as exclusive non-album track “Innh Dahh” upon the record’s official release date. Sweet deal. [ Pre-order on iTunes. ][ Pre-order at The Ghostly Store. ]

In addition to these traditional formats, Black City will be released in a limited-edition design package built by award-winning design firm Boym, winner of the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum’s National Design Award in 2009. More details are on the way.

For a taste of things to come, watch Matthew Dear’s Black City video trailer—a striking, Metropolis-influenced montage of images and Dear’s new music—above, and at his official website.
