Mala Kunia was released as a limited edition on occasion of the Australian concerts in late 2014. It is the eighth release of the so-called 'cupdisc' series. The album features seven new compositions, including two which were co-composed by new band member Ulrich Schnauss together with Edgar Froese.


With this release a new Tangerine Dream era was started: The Quantum Years.


The Eastgate Music Shop about the CD release"For your Ears only!
During Tangerine Dream's Australian concerts in mid-November we will start shipping the first compositional work of the new line-up comprising Edgar Froese, Ulrich Schnauss, Thorsten Quaeschning and Hoshiko Yamane. It is the format of a so-called Cupdisc (EP) with a running time of nearly 55 minutes and the first product out of "The Quantum Years" series starting on 16th November 2014 with the MMW Festival concert in Melbourne. This cupdisc is named Mala Kunia -- the name of two Aboriginal tribes, according to Aboriginal mythology, living ages ago around Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, whereas the Mala tribe lived on the sunny side and the Kunia on the shady side of the rock.
This release will come as a limited edition because it's just the overture to a bigger CD/Vinyl release in early spring 2015."


A short time after its CD release this album became available as MP3 download at the Tangerine Dream Download Shop as well.
