For the release of Delicate Steve’s second album Positive Force, due to drop July 10th a very special event has been arranged by label Luaka Bop. Partnering with parte and WWMTH Creative Lab, they have devised a scavenger hunt-cum-listening party with multiple listening stations placed around various Brooklyn and Manhattan locations this week. Starting tomorrow (May 31st) and running until June 3rd, fans eager to hear Positive Force will have the opportunity to discover a different song per station, with play-buttons hidden in parks, gardens, bridges and piers. Listeners will be able to plug in their own headphones to the strategically placed play-buttons and experience their own personal listening party.
Perhaps the most exciting location to look out for is a converted NYPD van slinging not just tunes but tasty treats in the form of a grilled cheese sandwich labeled the Delicate Cheese (cue slide whistle). Anyone wishing to hear the entire album can discover every hidden location with a map available at www.delicatesteve.com but to give you a head start you may want to check out:
