Alternative rock band Third Eye Blind is producing their next album, Ursa Major, in a creative way--with the help of fan-created remixes.
Using the Indaba music collaboration site, fans can watch Third Eye Blind recording tracks for Ursa Major in the studio. After all the components for a song have been recorded, fans can mix and remix tracks.
According to Wired.com, Third Eye Blind's idea for Ursa Major may be the first time a band plans to intentionally leak the components that make up an album in advance of its release.
As soon as Third Eye Blind finishes tracking a song for Ursa Major, they'll put the stems up. For each set of stems, there will be a contest for user-submitted mixes and remixes. The winners will be featured on an Ursa Major companion compilation alongside Third Eye Blind's final cuts.
