Pre-order of I Need Love. You get 2 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it's released.
This album is 28 songs long. To achieve the maximum effect, it's recommended to listen all the way through in one sitting, eyes closed, without interruptions, and on a media player instead of streaming, to eliminate song gaps. If necessary, you can divide the album into side A (tracks 1-14) and side B (tracks 15-28). Or, if this is inconvenient, each track is available on its own as well. Barring all of this, it is also possible to skip this entirely and listen to something else.
