The next BoC album after TH wasn't going to be a BoC album. It was going to be a David Bowie album produced by BoC. When Bowie sadly passed, the all the planning and prep work the brothers had been doing came to an abrupt halt. See their twitter tribute to Bowie, "there are no words". They have only recently begun to work on new material after spending a long time figuring out what they want to do next.
You know what adds slight credence to this awesome theory? MDG stopped being a presence on here after 2015. Right after Bowie died.
But on the other hand, does that mean they were going to produce Blackstar or was this a different album? Bowie did mention he was listening to Boards of Canada around the time he died.
Edit: Last MDG post was Fri Dec 04, 2015 and Bowie died in January so man, that's all too coincidental!
