German art rock innovators Can were known for creating relentlessly experimental albums boiled down from endless improvisational sessions, but they possessed a keen sensibility for writing offbeat pop songs. They released a decent amount of 45s, all of which are collected in one place for the first time on The Singles. Even though some of these selections appeared in longer form on the group's seminal albums, here they're presented as three- or four-minute edits. In the case of tracks like Tago Mago's sprawling centerpiece "Halleluwah" or the lovely riverside drift of Future Days' title track, the single version distills them to their essence, concentrating on the moments with the heaviest grooves and most up-front vocals. Of course, Can's albums contained plenty of tracks that were obvious choices for singles, and tunes like the smooth, trippy "She Brings the Rain" and the immortal funk jams "Vitamin C" and "Mushroom" are among the most memorable and instantly appealing selections in the group's sprawling catalog. Two of the group's poppiest singles even managed to become genuine chart hits at the time of their release. The 1971 single "Spoon," which uniquely combined live drumming with a drum-machine pulse, reached the German Top Ten after it was featured as the theme song to a popular television program called Das Messer. A few years later, Can's cosmic disco single "I Want More" hit the U.K. Top 30, and even resulted in an appearance on the BBC's iconic Top of the Pops. Aside from songs like this, which are well known even to casual fans of the group, the collection contains a decent amount of rarities and lesser-known A-sides (particularly from the group's later, less canonical incarnations). Some of these are among the silliest pieces the group ever laid to tape. "Turtles Have Short Legs," a rare single from 1971, is particularly goofy, with Damo Suzuki giddily shouting over the song's supremely jaunty piano-led rhythm. There's also a curious instrumental rendition of the Christmas standard "Silent Night." Even more head-scratching is "Can Can," a swirling, athletic interpretation of the familiar Jacques Offenbach melody, and the novelty single "Hoolah Hoolah," from Can's late-'80s reunion album Rite Time (which featured the group's original vocalist, Malcolm Mooney). Songs like these are pretty trivial compared to the group's best work, but in the context of a run through the group's singles, they're harmless whimsy. For all of their serious, avant-garde inclinations, Can could be awfully fun to listen to, and this alternate universe hit parade is a sterling demonstration of the group at its most immediate, energetic, and enjoyable. ~ Paul Simpson

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:


Primary value

If primary value isn't available


Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight


Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
