Hope you’re doing well. I’m in the last stretch of my Pre-Order Campaign which – only if I reach my goal – will mean my new album will come out as a vinyl record.
Growing up, I bought most of my music on CDs but I grew up with a record player in the living room – as part of what my Grandma called the ‘radiogram’. I loved listening to their selection of records, which ranged from Broadway musicals to jazz and classical
I have released 3 EPs, 2 full-length albums and a handful of singles so far, all on CDs only (and digital). My upcoming album ‘Wallflower’ feels like the culmination of all the music I’ve made so far – it feels like the best work I’ve done, so to mark that, I wanted to release it on vinyl.
I don’t know exactly what it is that I love about the black lacquered thing – it feels more significant and momentous somehow. More work goes into manufacturing them, more work goes into the listening of the music on them and in our convenience-obsessed world, I like that there is something where a little extra effort is required, and rewarded.
Just by pre-ordering my new album ‘Wallflower’ for the next 3 days (until midnight of December 17 Sydney time) you can help me get this album out on vinyl. There are plenty of rewards on offer aside from the CD or Vinyl and you’ll receive the digital version of the album in teh next couple of weeks, which is about 2 months before it’s publicly released.
Details of the Kickstarter Pre-Order Campaign here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/amandawallflower/wallflower-amanda-easton-album with ‘kicks’ available from $AUD10.
I’d love to hear your thought on vinyl too. Any good memories? Or are you new to vinyl – it certainly seems to be seeing a resurgence!
All the best,
