Rumours have been abound for a while now that a new Boards of Canada record was in the making, and the Scottish duo had neither confirmed nor commented on the subject until a fan posted on the bands Facebook page.

The fan asked: "Rumours of a new BOC album are rife? Any truth in this?." The first to respond was the administrators of the page simply saying "Yes."

We’re not sure if the band themselves run the page themselves but as the reply hasn’t been deleted or refuted, it's safe to say whoever was behind he response is in the know.

It's six years since we last had an album from the pair, and as yet we have no more details about any possible release date or single, but as soon as we have anything else we’ll be sure to let you know.
