“I asked your boss for your number. I never wondered which way it would go. You woke me up from my slumber. Now let me break your work flow. It’s not a lot, but all I wanna do.

The subject of their ad, posted in the Minneapolis Missed Connections section of the popular classifieds site, provides the album’s title and release date (“White Women 05-12-14”) complete with artwork and a map reference to the First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis – famously featured in Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ film. A fun promotional twist rather than a major campaign, but it made us smile.
