And you say, all your hope is gone, and what’s the use in trying. What you need is to have some faith, shake off those sad blues, and get yourself a new direct-to-fan campaign from PledgeMusic to fund your next album. Yes, Michael Bolton is the latest musician to sign up with the company with a campaign that will see fans not just chipping in money to pre-order the album, but choosing its title and influencing the songs and collaborators contained within it.
“5 million fans can’t be wrong: there just aren’t many artists in the modern era whose careers compare to Michael Bolton’s,” said PledgeMusic’s head of talent relations Scott Graves. “And we couldn’t be happier about the chance to assist Michael and his fans with an up-close and personal view of the making of his newest record. This is the start of something great.” As with other PledgeMusic campaigns, Bolton’s will see fans getting behind-the-scenes videos, photos and updates throughout the recording process. And for those paying £3,202, they’ll get lunch in Connecticut with Bolton himself.
