Landed is the band Can's seventh studio album, released in 1975. It is said to be the beginning of their poppier, less experimental era.

The album has been described as the band's attempt at glam rock,[citation needed] and the upbeat nature of most of the tracks do give the album this feel. The last and longest track on the album, however, "Unfinished", still has much more of an ambient feel similar to that found on earlier albums such as Future Days and Soon Over Babaluma.

Recording and production[edit]

Landed was recorded at Inner Space Studios at Schloss Nörvenich near Cologne, in 1975. It was engineered by Holger Czukay at Inner Space Studios. Side A was mixed by Toby Robinson and Holger Czukay at Studio Dierks in Stommeln, Germany, while side B was mixed by Czukay at Inner Space Studios, both sides under the assistance of René Tinner. The album was produced by the band themselves, and produced a single, "Hunters and Collectors", backed by "Vernal Equinox", which was issued on Virgin that same year.
