Amanda Palmer Releases Hurricane Harvey Relief Single

Amanda Palmer has released a charity single, crowdsourced from her Patreon supporters, dubbed ‘Drowning In Sound’. According to a message from Palmer, 100% of the profits will go to the Texas Diaper Bank (http://www.texasdiaperbank.org), who are helping all affected areas in the Harvey aftermath, not just in Houston.

Here is Palmer’s message to fans and supporters regarding the track:

HOLA COMRADES!

super-quick one…

if you missed it, i just wrote, recorded and released a brand-new song, written with help from input from over 600 patrons, called “drowning in the sound”. i then released it as a Patreon Thing.

i’m really, really proud of this song. it’s just piano and vocals but it sounds massive. there’s shades of everything in it: a little ani, a little regina, a little tori, a little prince…

even a little elliott smith.

the lyrics were inspired by lots of things: the many personal and heavy comments on my patreon post, the eclipse, the hurricane, the government, the increasing toxicity on the internet….

the entire story behind the song is HERE:

and you can get it directly HERE on bandcamp:

https://amanda.bandcamp.com/track/amanda-palmer-drowning-in-the-sound

it should be up on iTunes/Spotify etc in a few days. for now, bandcamp.

100% of the public profits will go to the Texas Diaper Bank (http://www.texasdiaperbank.org), who are helping all affected areas in the harvey aftermath (not just houston).

PLEASE LISTEN (with headphones or on good speakers!!), DOWNLOAD, DONATE and SHARE.
