Latest E-Mail From Billy Burke’s Newsletter

Billy Burke sent in the following e-mail to his newsletter suscribers:

Don’t know really how to feel. I’ve been so out-of-control-busy
lately but when I woke up I realized “Holy Shit– my record comes
out tomorrow”. As most of you know this has been quite a long time
coming for me so my emotions are all over the place. Anyway we’re
all very proud of this album so I hope you all enjoy it. In case it
needs mentioning, Removed is due to go live at 12 noon, east coast
time. (that’s 9 am over here on the west coast) tomorrow 6/22. I’ll
be sending an email out as soon as it’s up, ready and available.

While the album will be available digitally in all the usual spots
such as itunes, we have (it now seems unwisely) only shipped 1000
Cd’s to our distributor and given the amount of feedback we have
received so far we are a little nervous that they may sell out
pretty fast.

I’m normally an itunes kind of guy, however in this case the
physical copies are a helluva lot sweeter because only THEY contain
the 12 page booklet with the lyrics, photos, and all the other stuff
that kind of makes it feel like an album. That said, keep in mind I
grew up buying 12 inch vinyl records and these kooky little things
we called “cassette tapes” so maybe that’s just me :)

Anyhow, a couple other important things to report. I’m humbled and
proud to announce that a portion of the proceeds will be going to
VH1 “Save the Music”. Sadly, music programs are being cut all across
the country. VH1 Behind the Music is dedicated to keeping those
programs alive by donating instruments and much needed funding to
help keep America’s kids making music. A portion of the sale of each
album sold will be going to this amazing cause.

Finally, I wanted to do something to say thank you to you guys
(the subscribers) as well, and so for the first 72 hours the price
of the physical copies of the album will be a mere $12.97. After 72
hours (if they don’t sell out first) the price will be going up.

So relatively speaking, for less than the price of a ticket to
ECLIPSE, not only can you only pick up a new album but you can help
some kids get the instruments they need while you’re at it.

That’s it for now. Keep your eye on your inbox.


P.S. I’m still working on those Q&A answers and I hope to have them
to you in the next few days.

P.P.S Congrats to the winners of the record release party tickets.
I’m looking forward to seeing you guys there on Tuesday.
