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.
While on tour in the US, Morrissey filmed his March 2nd stop at the Hollywood High School auditorium. The footage is now a live concert film, titled Morrissey 25: Live For Hollywood High, has an official trailer, poster, and release plans. The trailer features Moz and band onstage performing “Still Ill” and “Speedway,” along with devoted fans dancing and cheering along. [read more]
