Plus details of the exclusive content on offer to fans...
Mercury Prize nominee and multiple-time Meteor Award winner Gemma Hayes has joined forces with PledgeMusic for her fifth studio album, slated for a 2014 release through her own Chasing Dragons imprint.
A direct-to-fan platform, PledgeMusic offers Hayes a unique opportunity to interact with her fan base, allowing for access to a range of exclusive content, including studio updates, behind the scenes photo shoots, handwritten lyrics and a made to order limited edition vinyl live album.
There's even the opportunity for a limited number of fans to join Hayes in the studio and play on the new record. Also on offer is the chance to own the Fender Telecaster guitar used on debut album Night On My Side and the resulting tour. The forthcoming album can also be pre-ordered directly from Gemma's PledgeMusic page.
"Working with PledgeMusic gives me a chance to do something truly extraordinary," says Gemma. "I can actively engage my audience from the beginning of the recording process. They will get personal updates from the studio, invites to play on the record and exclusive private shows where I debut the new songs ahead of release. PledgeMusic are breaking the mould in a fresh and exciting way. I'm very happy to be part of that."
