Earlier this year, John Vanderslice’s extraordinarily successful Kickstarter campaign raised nearly $80,000 allowing him to self-release his highly praised ninth full-length album, Dagger Beach, and the experimental, track-by-track cover of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs. Of the many rewards issued to backers of this project – which included vinyl records, original 1/2” master tapes, and even personalized songs – the most unique was “Song For Clay Miller”, a song written for, and released exclusively to the 1,200 supporters of his campaign.
Now, “Song For Clay Miller” along with “Vitas At Wimbledon” (an unreleased outtake from Vanderslice’s 2009 LP Romanian Names) is available as a double a-side single for download.
In the spirit of Vanderslice’s Kickstarter campaign, and both his and The Native Sound’s love for all things limited and exclusive, the digital version of this release will be available for only 30 days. In addition, 50% of all profits from the digital downloads will go the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international digital rights organization near and dear to Vanderslice.
