elseq 1–5 is the twelfth studio album by British electronic music duo Autechre, released by Warp Records on 19 May 2016.[1][2][3] The album consists of five segments, each roughly 50 minutes in length. All five were made available for individual or group purchase as a digital download only, making it Autechre's first album without a physical release.[4]

Release[edit]

The first track on the album, "feed1", was given a preview broadcast by BBC Radio 6 on 13 May 2016.[5][6] A second track, "c16 deep tread", was played on Alaskan student radio station KSUA on 18 May 2016, the track being later released for streaming on Warp Records' Soundcloud page.[7] The album was released for purchase on the duo's webstore the following day. The album consists of five distinct parts, each with its own album and individual track artwork designed by The Designers Republic.[8] Warp Records stated that there are no plans to release the album on a physical medium, making the album Autechre's first digital-only studio album release.[4]
