This one is special.
Today, we're releasing a 20-song rarities/b-sides compilation album called, The Songs Are All We Have. The compilation is the anchor for a new summerlong campaign celebrating the past 5 years!
A few of our awesome supporters have mentioned they would support us more if we ever needed. This year we have big plans to do lots of releases and we need your help to make it all happen. We decided to run a little kickstarter without the kickstarter and keep it all through our friends at Bandcamp. The album comes with a couple different merch packages that include a limited edition poster, stickers, buttons, guitar picks, vinyl slipmat, and a custom 7" vinyl where you get to pick the songs!
Putting this compilation together, I quickly realized that songwriting is the heart of Other Songs (obviously). These songs belong as they're presented on this album, raw and honest. They're recorded in the way they were written.
We want to thank all of you who have supported us and our artists and releases during the past 5+ years! It is not only massively encouraging to see a record purchased, but it is empowering, as it allows us to do more. And doing more is what we're working on right now. We're working on a interview series (next year), a subscription service (this Fall), a live EP (September), a vinyl release (January), a new artist signing (January), and a handful of new records!
Please consider supporting us further so we can continue to provide a place for songwriters and their songs to not only survive but to thrive.
Thank you again.
- Scott and everyone at Other Songs!
