About


On 21st November 2019 a new album from Sam Bailey, Shipwreck, will be launched at Free Range alongside an exhibition of work made by the artist Donna Fitzgerald. Donna produced hundreds of drawings, acetates and prints in response to the music and the designer Ole Henriksen has used these to create the packaging for a proposed vinyl release of the album.

But we can only make this vinyl release happen with your help.

We hope to raise £500 through offers of support and pre-orders of the album.

- If you pledge £10-20 you will receive three large photograph postcards from Kamila Lobuzinska's Free Range series. This is a good option for those of you who would like to support this project but who don't own a record player!

- If you pledge £20-30 you will receive limited edition copy of the album.

- If you pledge £30 or more you will receive a copy of the album plus a single-edition artwork by Donna Fitzgerald.

If we can raise £500 then I will pay for the records and the packaging to be manufactured (using recycled card and plastic where possible) ready for the album launch in November. If we don’t meet our target of £500 the album will still be available to stream, the launch gig will still go ahead but there will be no physical release and all pledges will be refunded.

Why is a physical release of this material important? Because of the quality of Donna’s artwork and how this connects with the emotional pull of the music. The animation above, made by Ole using Donna's artwork, gives a taste of how the music and images work together.

I recorded this album in 2016 at the end of a horrible Summer when I felt like I was coming apart at the seams. This music, built from fragments of things I had written over the past decade, felt like pieces of wreckage being carried along by great waves before being washed up on the shore, tender and fresh. This is why a physical release is important to me, because Donna's artwork underlines the feeling of the music.

COSTS

So far the album has cost £1005 in recording / mixing / artwork /design fees. It will cost approximately £1500 to manufacture 300 copies of the record and a further £300 to create the packaging. The total cost of the project, including the vinyl release, is £2805.

I am asking for only £500 here because it is an achievable target and will help to gauge if there is any demand for a physical release of this project. Obviously, if you are able to offer more than £30 it would be very welcome.

Risks and challenges

If the target of £500 is not met the physical release will not happen and all pledges will be refunded.

If the target is met the pre-ordered copies will be available at the album launch on 21st November 2019 and will be posted shortly after.
