The Blend campaign launches in tandem with the June 24 release of Kotche’s exclusive iTunes digital EPFantasyland (http://bit.ly/fantasyland_ep). Conceived as a companion piece to the critically lauded Adventureland — released in March and featuring Kronos Quartet, Chicago’s eighth blackbird ensemble and
Gamelan Galak Tika — the four-song EP offers a rare look at Kotche’s tireless work ethic in the studio.
“I’m very proud of the extra material and performances that were directly related to Adventureland,"
Kotche says, “so I wanted people to be able to hear them. In a way, the
listener is getting a glimpse into the creative process of making a
record by hearing these pieces in their original forms.”
