Fans of fiddling genius Patrick Wolf who invested in his new album, The Bachelor, will see a portion of the profits, after the £100,000 target required was met, reports BBC 6 Music.
Fans and the business savvy could buy shares in Wolf's album through Band Stocks, which allows artists the opportunity to raise money to fund their record with a bit more creative control.
Like any stock or share, the investors have the opportunity to make money from the transaction and Wolf's target of £100,000 was met last Monday. If the record does make a profit, half of it will go back to those who invested.
In an interview with BBC 6 Music he said:
“I almost feel like this album is a coming of age record. My voice has dropped so much and the subject matter has become more serious and less throwaway.
“It’s coming from a deeper place in my body as a songwriter, about a lot more serious issues.”
“The type of people in journalism who have been championing tend to be more of the super-credible journalists, I seem to be taken a lot more seriously now. When you get older it’s a nice thing to feel.”
The Bachelor is released today and is the first part of a double album, with The Conqueror coming next year. Read our super-credible review here and all three parts of our super-credible interview with the man himself here, here and here
