A Message from Hugh Cornwell at PledgeMusic

Hi everyone.

Welcome to my new PledgeMusic page.
I’m happy to announce that my new album ‘TOTEM & TABOO’ will be recorded later this year.

PledgeMusic allows me to release TOTEM directly to you, cutting out a lot of the middle men and cutting down the time between recording and release. It means you’ll be getting the new album before it goes into the shops. As a Pledger there’ll be a wide range of exclusive and limited edition items and experiences available just to you.

There’ll be signed CDs of the new album, Limited Edition T-shirts, original artwork and much more, plus the opportunity to catch my videoblogs from around the world. As a reward for their support and involvement, the first 500 pledgers will be mentioned on the album artwork. No matter what you pledge for you will automatically receive the album as a digital stream two weeks before we ship the signed copies. You’ll also get access to my “Pledgers-Only Updates Section”. This is a FREE web-page where I’ll keep you right up to date with the album’s progress in the form of video diaries, photos, blogs and rough mixes.

In addition, every pledger will be doing their bit to help a great charity as a percentage of the proceeds from this campaign will go to Missing People, a charity that offers a lifeline to the 250,000 people who go missing every year.

Please get involved, let’s keep the relationship between fans and artists rewarding, fruitful and close.

Thanks
Hugh Cornwell
