Released Aprill 1st 2013 on Ed harcourt website with this message:
New album: #WizardBounce available for free
"The dam of change is leaking and I’ve cut off my thumbs. It is time to put a stop to all this mopey, floppy haired balladry & throw the piano overboard & man up. Wizard Bounce is my lucky 7th album and you are witnessing a well kindled rebirth, a sexy dissidence, a timely scream in the face of pompous boredom & meandering mewling. Let lightning strike and turn me into a rabid mangy badger who ambles through the labyrinth of whimsy, cursing & muttering about nothing & everything.
#WizardBounce is not a genre it is simply a state of mind. Wizard Bounce is a giant mushroom cloud in your soul, the unicorn that takes you to pleasure town. Wizard Bounce kidnaps the future & seduces the past, mocks space & time, changes the fate of idiots & embraces the deathly knell that is now. Come bounce with us until your hair is like a pointy hat.”
p.s. Ed would love to know what you think of the record. Tweet him.
Aprill 3rd 2013 on Ed harcourt website:
Sorry I lied.
Sorry I betrayed you.
I never meant to hurt you (…never meant to! make! you! cry!)
In case you didn’t check the date on Monday and if the opening Facejacker voicemail, the thumping trance, the psycho-psychedelia or that Herzog dialogue or the talk of midgets and mustachios didn’t give it away… I am sorry. Sorry that I treated you like a fool. An April fool. Most of you cottoned-on, but in case you’re one of those people hassling my manager to buy a copy on vinyl, let me be clear: Wizard Bounce is NOT my seventh album, it was a (somewhat elaborate) hoax.
