Yesterday, Amanda Palmer’s new EP, Amanda Palmer Performs the Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele, launched – and everyone wanted it. In a three minute period, $15,000 in music and merch was sold. From there on, 4,000 digital EPs were sold, all of the vinyl, and most of the high end packages were snatched up. The release has truly been a success. Sean Francis says, “We couldn’t be happier. We hoped for far less than what’s happened, braced for the worst, and were floored by how wonderful it’s turned out. We’ve said that this is an experiment from day one, but to see such positive response from the fans, and to have so many people tell us that we’re doing things right? It’s hard for gross earnings to trump knowing we made the fans happy, but being able to see both of those elements walking happily hand-in-hand is GREAT.”
