Amanda Palmer: New “In Harm’s Way” Video

With every new brilliant song she releases, I feel more certain that music history will look back at Amanda Palmer as the most important and honest artist of this time. She’s not only brave enough to speak truth at a time when so many cower, she wraps even the most painful truth and injustice in compassion and beautiful, timeless melodies.

Amanda Palmer: New Song “Small Hands, Small Heart”

Amanda Palmer once again called on her Patreon fans for songwriting inspiration, or, rather, participation. You can read about the project here. The page also shows pics of how Amanda transformed random words, phrases, and ideas she culled from her fans’ very diverse range of comments into a fully formed and recorded song in just three days. This one’s a bit more Dresden/Grand Theft Amanda, quiet yet peppy, calm but fierce.

You can download Amanda Palmer’s new song, “Small Hands, Small Heart,” at Bandcamp for $1 (or more if you wish).

100% of the song’s proceeds benefit Puerto Rico’s recovery from Hurricane Maria.
