Sophie’s bubbly, surrealist singles have percolated through pop consciousness since they first started appearing online in 2012. Now, the UK producer and PC Music affiliate has announced a debut physical release called Product, due out from Numbers on November 27th.
The eight-song release features four tracks originally put out in 2013 and 2014: “Bipp”, “Elle”, “Lemonade”, and “Hard”. Its B-side comprises four new tracks, the first of which Sophie premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show today.
Product is now up for pre-order as a CD in a bubbled silicon case available in black or pink. You can also purchase the CD without the extra case — and if you’re feeling extra frisky, you can pre-order a Sophie-branded “silicon product” (guaranteed to be “skin safe, odorless, and tasteless”) that comes with a download of all eight tracks.
Also listed on Sophie’s merchandise page are a bubbled jacket, a pair of sunglasses, and a pair of rubber platform shoes; however, none of these items can be purchased at this time, and it’s unclear whether they were ever available for sale or if they’ve even been manufactured.
