With Seriah’s help I now have album 3, entitled “Pretend”, pretty much ready for release. I’m planning to send off the first 5 handmade CDs to CD Baby tomorrow. Factory-pressed versions will likely be available in February 2010. I have pictures of the CD graphics further below in this post so you can see my handmade CDs are still pretty.
If you would like to pre-order either one of the handmade CDs or factory-pressed CDs, you should EMAIL ME right now at psychecorporation [at] gmail [dot] com with subject line “Preorder Pretend” and let me know how many copies and handmade [and autographed?] vs. factory-pressed.
I am only making handmade CDs until February when the factory-pressed ones should be out. With handmade CDs I can autograph the inside and write you a note, whereas the factory-made ones are shrink-wrapped so I probably can’t autograph them. But I could write a separate note on a piece of paper for you ;)
So these are the advantages of pre-ordering:
1. You get the option of an autograph/personal note from me.
2. You pay $8.50 instead of $12.97 per CD, because then I can mail the CD to you directly instead of going through CD Baby or other distributors who charge an additional fee to distribute.
3. You can have a couple other extras if you feel really generous:
I could send you a handwritten set of lyrics for a song you really like of mine for a donation of $3 [3 max, because my hand gets tired]
I could email you an mp3 of a mysterious unfinished song I’m working on, and/or something from the Retired and Unborn Songs section at http://psychecorporation.com/lyrics [$5 donation for each mp3]
or I could email you a high resolution version of some of my promotional images. [$3 each]
All you gotta do is email me.
Now check out the photos I took of the CDs I’m mailing out!
Here’s the track list for “Pretend”
