Soap Opera is out today!

So far as we know, it's the first album ever released in bars of soap.
In true Blimp Rock fashion, here's a quick F.A.Q. on the new record:
1. Why are you releasing an album in bars of soap?
We feel the market for getting music quick is over-saturated by heavy hitters such as Spotify and Apple Music. On the other hand, the market for getting music slow still feels pretty untapped.
2. An album inside a bar of soap... How does that work?
There are laminated download codes inside each bar. The bars were made by Ottawa singer-songwriter Andy Swan (www.andysshave.com).
3. So how do I get to the music?
That's up to you! You can lather your way to the middle, chop the bar... BlimpRock has no business in the bathrooms of the nation.
4. Is the album any good?
Woah now, we can't comment on that- but here's a review from Grayowl Point!
5. What's the music like? Are there any songs as good as 401, Lake Ontario Lifeguards or Let's All Stay In Tonight?
You can check out the video for the first single "Dear Science" below and decide for yourself!
