Boxes is a soundtrack album by Australian band Icehouse, released by Festival Records / Chrysalis Records in November 1985. The work was originally conceived by its composers, Iva Davies and Robert Kretschmer, in collaboration with choreographer Graeme Murphy of the Sydney Dance Company for performance as the ballet Boxes. The first live performance of Boxes was given by the Sydney Dance Company together with Davies and Kretschmer of Icehouse and guest percussionist Masaki Tanazawa in the Opera Theatre of the Sydney Opera House on 7 November 1985.[1] Boxes was released in the US under the name Sydney Dance Company.[2] The single "No Promises" was released as a 12" in November and a cassingle in December on Regular Records for Australian and New Zealand markets, it contained other tracks from Boxes; two tracks from Boxes were later released on their next studio album Measure for Measure in April 1986.
