Listen to Amanda Palmer’s striking new single ‘Drowning In The Sound’

Her third solo album, 'There Will Be No Intermission', has also been announced for a March release

Amanda Palmer has shared her striking new single ‘Drowning In The Sound’ – listen to the track below.

The song serves as the lead single off Palmer’s upcoming third studio album ‘There Will Be No Intermission’, which will be released on March 8, 2019 – which is also International Women’s Day.

Speaking about the record, Palmer said in a statement: “I feel more urgency than ever to share the naked truth of my experiences.”

“The kind of stories that I’m sharing on this record – abortion, miscarriage, cancer, grief, the darker sides of parenthood – have been therapeutic and frightening to write. But every time I play them for my friends and fans, the nodding heads of empathy have lit a fire under my ass to record and release them.”

‘There Will Be No Intermission’ has been produced by John Congleton, and features guest contributions from Jason Webley, Jherek Bischoff, keyboardist Max Henry, and drummer Joey Waronker.

Palmer will promote the new record with a North American tour, which kicks off in March 2019. The live show will feature Palmer playing solo on grand piano – but no UK dates have been announced as yet.

Back in October, Palmer shared a powerful video for her song ‘Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now’, which was released to mark the anniversary of the start of the #MeToo movement.
