Amanda Palmer urges Morrissey to crowdfund his album
Fresh off a controversy involving the Boston Marathon bombers, former Dresden Doll member Amanda Palmer is working on something in a different vein.
In a letter she wrote to Salon, Palmer urges Morrissey to crowdfund a new album. Palmer had previously explored the technique, raising over $1 million for her Theatre Is Evil album. The urge possibly came after Morrissey's interview in The Guardian, saying that he has enough songs for three more albums. Regardless, the move isn't terribly certain at this point in time, rather just a suggestion from Palmer's point of view.
They will be joining Mary J. Blige, James Blunt, and Jake Bugg, in a ceremony hosted by Claire Danes. According to Morrissey’s Facebook, he will be performing three songs (although he didn’t reveal which ones). [read more]
