Million Seller is an album.

It's done! The new album is finished and it's called Million Seller. I think it's pretty good, definitely the best album I've made in 16 years. You can get your filthy hands on it July 29th. 

A lot has changed in the years since Fake Fun, and one of those things is the relevance of physical media for music. I don't think people care about CDs anymore (I sure don't), and I doubt the crossover between Bonefish Sam fans and vinyl fans is enough that I could ever unload a minimum pressing of those scratchy, noisy things.

One thing that hasn't changed since 2000, however, is the obsoleteness of microcassettes. But I'm betting on the MCs in a big way, by releasing Million Seller as a microcassette in its only physical manifestation. Cassettes are coming back, right? Microcassettes can't be far behind.
There will, of course, be digital downloads too, and those will be available at no extra charge to mitigate the buyers remorse of the microcassette purchasers. After this Million Seller comes out you won't be able to find a microcassette player for a reasonable price anyway.
