Machu Picchu is the sixth release of the so-called 'cupdisc' series. Like it predecessor, Mona da Vinci, this album comes in a jewel case instead of a cardboard sleeve. It features six previously unreleased compositions by Edgar Froese.
Only a few days after its CD release this album became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well.
On occasion of the Record Store Day 2019 on April 13th, Kscope Records re-released the album on yellow vinyl. It was issued with a 4-page insert featuring the album liner notes and the chapter about John Peel from the autobiography 'Force Majeure' by Edgar Froese.
