United Kingdom | SuRie kicks off Crowdfunding for New Album [ˈdʌz(ə)n]
Since representing the United Kingdom earlier this year, singer/songwriter SuRie has been keeping very busy! First she set out on a national tour titled 'Eurovision: Unplugged' where she impressed audiences across the country singing Eurovision classics both new and old. She's currently on her 'Scrapbook' tour and as somebody who went to the London show back in September I would thoroughly recommend going to see her in Maidstone on November 24th if you're able to get there! Earlier today, SuRie has now revealed the details of her crowdfunding project for her new album '[ˈdʌz(ə)n]'.
SuRie explains on the crowdfunding page - which you can find here - that the album is a concept. [ˈdʌz(ə)n] - a dozen. A set of twelve; twelve tracks, twelve months. The album will consist of twelve covers of songs - one for each month - that SuRie connects with and also features the name of the month in the song title.
Not much has been given away about the songs - but SuRie has teased that the album will be an eclectic collection, with tracks by some big names including Nina Simone, The Foo Fighters, Prince, Carole King and Tori Amos. If you really wanted to spoil the tracklist you could probably look up some of the songs from the above criteria ... but where's the fun in that!?
At the point of writing, a fantastic £660 has already been funded across 21 backers - which means within a few hours of its launch the project is already closing in on the 25% stage. Not to worry if you need to wait for payday before having the funds to pledge - the crowdfunding Kickstarter will remain open for another 29 days.
As with all Kickstarter projects, different sized pledges come with different rewards. Starting with SuRie cyber hugs for another more than £1, the rewards slowly build up including digital copies of the album, physical copies, behind the scene information and treats, tickets to the promotional launch event and then culminating with a one-of-a-kind signed limited edition blue keyboard which SuRie has performed with and used to write music if you fancy pledging £1,500 or more.
