So out of the gate, I'm gonna let you know that I call shenanigans on this whole rumor I'm about to elaborate on. (After all, we're still waiting on that comprehensive boxset of pre-Skam era material we heard about like, 2 years ago) But according to BBC6 Dj Peter Serafinowicz, not only is a new BOC album on the way, but it's a double disc set (because it's not hard enough to sell 1 disc albums these days). His full quote below, a few things to keep in mind
1: This guy also voiced Darth Maul
2: Boards of Canada haven't made a peep of any kind since 2007's Remix of Why's track "Good Friday"
3. If you don't know who BOC are, you've got to get on it. Music Has The Right To Children might be one of the best albums ever. Check out "Music Is Math" below for a taste...
“I’m gonna play some Board of Canada now. I’m a bit of a Boards of Canada evangelist. They’re my favorite band, I think. Maybe them and The Beatles. But, they are a band, again, a bit like The Fall. It’s like once you get into them, or rather, once something clicks you just wanna hear everything they’ve released…They’ve got a new album coming out soon and I think it’s gonna be a double album and I’m so excited, I really am-to hear their new one” -Peter Serafinowicz

Have you seen the BoC facebook page lately? Around mid-march, someone posted asking if there is any truth to this rumour. A one word response of "yes" was immediately posted by BoC.
Thought for food.
