Katie Noonan is reaching out to her fans across the country to help finance the creation of her forthcoming studio album via a PledgeMusic campaign.
The campaign will kick off next month; Katie revealing that new LP will comprise all new material and that it will be preceded by the release of an EP entitled ‘Peace Is My Drug’ in February. The title track is based around the Michael Leunig poem ‘Peace’ and the acclaimed illustrator and poet has crafted a second verse exclusively for the lead song.
“I have been hesitant to do so for many years, as I figure it’s enough to ask people to come to my gigs and buy my albums,” Katie says about the Pledge campaign. “But having produced six independent albums in close to five years, I am in a position now where I would love to invite my wonderful audience and supporters to be part of the journey for my next album.
“My next album feels like a return to me. This is the first truly Katie album with all new material in a long time. All in all, I’m really proud of these songs and so excited to be able to share them.”
The PledgeMusic campaign kicks off on Thursday February 12 and those who contribute to Katie’s new LP will receive the ‘Peace Is My Drug’ EP as an instant download. A number of pledges will be on offer, including an exclusive live album and a private concert.
In the meantime, Katie will also hit the road in March for a series of live performances across the East Coast, at which fans will be treated to a selection of the new material. Tickets for all are on sale tomorrow.
