From The Orchard:
The Walkmen released their highly anticipated new album today exclusively on AmieStreet.com as part of the website’s ongoing Download To Make A Difference campaign that launched earlier this month.
You & Me will be sold for a period of three weeks at the special price of $5. For each album purchased AmieStreet.com will donate $5 to a cause of personal significance to The Walkmen.
“All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease,” said Peter Bauer of The Walkmen. “This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”
The You & Me exclusive pre-release marks the second major release for AmieStreet.com's Download To Make A Difference campaign, which gives people the chance to support important causes by downloading new music.
The Walkmen’s new album is released by Gigantic Music and marketed and distributed by The Orchard. To download You & Me and give $5 to a great cause go to AmieStreet.com/thewalkmen.
