aaaah. it is with a swelling heart and a nervous smile that i hand you this record. it’s a simple offering, but it’s charged with emotion for me. i really, really hope you like it.
it took a lifetime to brew, and a decade to plan, and a month to make…and here it is. THE DAD RECORD (<-that’s the project page link, to be repeated below).
it’s me and my father, jack palmer, singing 12 carefully-chosen cover songs that we recorded together on guitar and piano (and a few other instruments).
the project page will take you to bandcamp, where you can stream for free (and all you $3+ patrons, you’ll get an email in a second with your download code for the whole record.)
i wrote everything i wanted to write about it on the forever-project page, which is, again, HERE: http://amandapalmer.net/you-got-me-singing/
this is such an emo moment for me, guys.
it’s my first real record since theatre is evil in 2012.
it’s my first real record since having a baby.
and it’s my first real record since putting things out via patreon.
all 7,782 of you, right now….can i simply say that you’ve changed my life, my mind, my soul, and my artistic output with your incredible faith in my creativity.
your vote of confidence in my ability to take your funding and make good art…it’s everything to me.
this is why i brought you here, so i could make things like this.
on my own dime, with my own community, on my own schedule…this is just so awesome.
this is *exactly* the record i wanted to make, when i got the idea to make it back in 2008 or whenever. it’s so wonderful when things like this actually manifest.
i am so, so, so glad you guys are on this journey with me. i hope this record brings you as much joy to listen to as it brought us to make.
if nothing else….if you have tiny kids, it puts them to sleep. i swear.
i love you so much.
