Amanda Palmer is happy to announce that her endless fight with Roadrunner Records is over:
dear The World,
i am very happy to announce today that i have finally been released from my contract with roadrunner records.
as many of you know, i’ve been fighting very, very hard to get off the label for the better part of two years.
for the past seven years, anything i have written and recorded (solo or with my band, The Dresden Dolls) has technically been owned and under the ultimate control of the label, but no longer. after endless legal bullshit, it’s over, i’ve been DROPPED, RELEASED, LET GO, whatever you wanna call it. in other words: i am FREE AT LAST!!!!!! RAAHH!!
She celebrates with a pay-what-you-want download of Do You Swear To Tell The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth So Help Your Black Ass, recorded with Jason Webley (guitar) and Sam Kulik (trombone).
