Now free from her record label of seven years, ex-Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer can legally follow her every musical whim, starting with a pleasantly bizarre side project, Evelyn Evelyn, a production of Cabaret, impromptu webcasts, YouTube song debut, and what else? Only an EP of cover songs by one of the most important rock bands of our time: Radiohead.
In an email to AFP fans (comme moi), Palmer conspicuously dropped the news:
i’m going to unveil my NEW ALBUM PROJECT, which *might* be an EP, and it *might* be an EP of radiohead songs, and i *might* be playing those radiohead songs on a magical instrument like, oh, a little ukulele.
The Radiohead covers EP is said to be shooting for a summer release, so let the countdown begin in one week from today. In the meantime, watch Palmer cover “Exit Music (For A Film),” “Creep,” and “Fake Plastic Trees” for a taste of what’s on the way.
