How much would YOU
pay? Time’s a-wasting!
By Blurt Staff
Sunday, Saddle Creek and Cursive began offering the band’s
new album Mama, I’m Swollen as a
digital download for only $1 through the Saddle Creek website, launching a
special promotion to allow fans to buy the album early at a lower cost.
For the next eight days, the new album will be available as a digital download
at a pro-rated price that will increase by $1 each day (i.e., the price was $2
yesterday, $3 TODAY on March 3rd, $4
on March 4th, etc.). When the record hits stores on March 10th, the digital
album will then remain at the regular price of $9.
The band will be on the road during March, playing eight shows around the
release of Mama, I’m Swollen and leading up to multiple performances at
Cursive will also make their national television debut on the Late Show with
David Letterman on Friday March 13th.
Last week, Cursive debuted two tracks from Mama,
I’m Swollen online – “From The Hips” and “I Couldn’t Love You” – which
Stereogum deemed “an anti-intellectual think piece” and “insanely catchy,
wild-eyed ‘80s pop…rad”, respectively. “From The Hips” is currently
available for a free mp3 download here.
Saddle Creek also has CD and deluxe LP physical editions of Mama, I’m Swollen
available. These include a download card for additional bonus music and videos,
varying artwork with handwritten lyrics by Cursive frontman Tim Kasher, and an
instant MP3 download of the record. For more information on these album
versions, please visit the Saddle Creek website: www.saddle-creek.com
