Rather than launching a typical promotion campaign, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante opted for a different kind of launch, the one involving a rocket.
As Rolling Stone reports, Frusciante has launched his new album "Enclosure" into space on March 29, at a "remote High Desert location in California."
So now that the "experimental Cube Satellite"Sat-JF14 is circulating the Earth, fans can download a free mobile app named after the satellite and track Sat-JF14's movement in real time. You can download the app here.
"When Sat-JF14 hovers over a user's geographic region, 'Enclosure' will be unlocked, allowing users to listen to the album for free on any iOs or Android mobile device," reads the official press release.
The album preview will be available until April 7, a day before the record's official release via Record Collection. You can check out the video of the satellite's launch below.
But if waiting for a satellite to cross over you head in order to hear the album sounds like too much of a hassle, you can always stream it via John's YouTube channel below.
