Ted Leo announces new album project funded by Kickstarter

SPB favorite Ted Leo has announced via Twitter a project to crowdfund his as-yet-untitled next album. Leo, whose last album as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, The Brutalist Bricks, was released in 2010, saw his recent record labels Lookout! and Touch and Go both close down in recent years. This new project is completely independent:



So now that I’m not working for anybody else, I hope we can work together to KEEP making good stuff. I’m ready to bring these songs forward, beyond the constraints of the shifting landscape of the music industry. I’m taking autonomy and control back, and using Kickstarter to commence the next phase, of which the album that this campaign aims to make a reality will be just the first step. The old label Immediate Records used to have a slogan: “Happy to be a part of the industry of human happiness.” I like that industry. And there’s a lot of work to do.



Funding options are varied, ranging from digital downloads to LPs to vegan meals with Leo and even private solo shows. You can back Ted Leo's new album on Kickstarter right here.
