do you know when the Barbican tickets go on sale?
the dates were on her website, but her husband said they announced them too early, so pulled the info this afternoon. Some interesting news about her new album coming out as a book - here's the details:
In the UK, we’ve opted to do something very different with the release of “Crooked.” We couldn’t bear to put out just another dead, plastic, CD; the UK needed and deserved something special. To that end, we’ve teamed up with The Friday Project and Harper Collins to release Kristin’s “Crooked” as an “album book.” Think of it as the most beautiful CD booklet you’ve ever seen – art photos, lyrics and essays – all wrapped up in a hard-cover, 60 pages, about the size of a standard paperback.
The “Crooked” book will contain access codes that will serve as your key to a media-rich online platform where you’ll find “Crooked” audio content in multiple formats, including lossless files, album outtakes and demos, a PDF preview of Kristin’s upcoming memoir, “Paradoxical Undressing” and pro audio stems for remixing. We’ll also continue to host fan remixes and the “Crooked” book-site will provide direct interaction with Kristin through comments and live chats: a living, portable, dynamic environment, as opposed to a “dead”, static CD. The publication date is June 11, 2010.
Is she not playing under the 50 ft Wave banner anymore? And so now she has "Crooked"? Is it already out? I shall need this.
50 Foot Wave have just been in the studio recording new stuff. There are also new Throwing Muses being recorded! Crooked has been in works for a while, but is now ready to come out - in June. But people subscribing to her 'strange angels' service will get it very soon (this is quarterly payment to fund all recording costs, in exchange for free gig tickets, exclusive music, cds, etc). She's done an amazing job of becoming a prolific artist who doesn't need a record contract.
