Also, echoing Radiohead's initial release of their last studio album, 'In Rainbows,' Palmer is offering the songs on a donation basis directly to fans via bandcamp.com. However, to cover some costs, a minimum fee of 84 cents per track has been set with 54 cents going into Radiohead's pockets as royalties and the rest going to PayPal to cover the transaction fee.
The EP is Palmer's second release this year after the self-titled debut from Evelyn Evelyn, the vaudevillian conjoined-twin project with Australian musician Jason Webley. Though Palmer mastered the ukulele in 2008 for a party piece covering Radiohead's 'Creep,' Evelyn Evelyn saw the Lexington, Mass., native debut her ukulele skills on record with a cover of Joy Division's 'Love Will Tear Us Apart.'
Palmer is currently finishing up the Evelyn Evelyn tour, which included a four-night stand at New York's Lucille Lortel Theatre and closes with a hometown show at Boston's House of Blues, Jun. 19.
'Amanda Palmer Plays ...' will also be available in July as a limited edition vinyl record, which will also include some of Palmer's artwork. Some lucky purchaser will also get a personal phone call from Palmer, during which she'll take song requests. In the meantime, her version of 'Idioteque' is available now.
