"Mercury", the first single from Bloc Party's third album Intimacy, was played as an exclusive on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show on 7 July 2008,[53] before being uploaded to the radio station's website fifteen minutes later.[54] The song had a similar electronic sound to the previous single, "Flux".[55] The exclusive had followed a countdown timer which had replaced the band's entire website for three days prior to Lowe's radio show. Many fans were angered by the stunt.[56] After the first play of "Mercury", Okereke stated that previous producers Jacknife Lee and Paul Epworth would be working on the new album.[57] It was also revealed that the single was to be released on 11 August 2008.[53] A music video was unveiled along with the single.[58] Bloc Party's third studio album takes an experimental, electronic direction, despite Okereke suggesting this would not be the case,[59] having said that the sound will have the "rawness" of Silent Alarm, but the "experience" of A Weekend in the City.[60]
The band announced the rush-release of Intimacy in a webchat with fans on 18 August 2008. From this date, the album became available for pre-order, in a variety of formats: a high-quality MP3 digital download to be delivered on 21 August 2008, and a physical CD release on 27 October 2008. "Trojan Horse", a track from the album, was made available to stream exclusively through NME.com.[61] On 20 August 2008, the band added further album tracks, "Signs" and third single "One Month Off", as well as "Trojan Horse", to their MySpace profile. On 23 August–24, the band played sets at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, second highest on the bill after headliners The Killers.[62] A similar set followed a week later on 30 August 2008, when they played a headline set at the Hydro Connect Music Festival in Argyll, Scotland.[63]
