Ted Leo announced Wednesday morning that he would be funding his new album through Kickstarter.

Well, folks, it’s happening. I’ve been working hard on a number of things for the past few years, and one of them is a ton of songs that will hopefully represent much more than just one new album; but today, I’m focusing on trying to get out that one new album. Mercifully free of label tethers, I’m taking the plunge and going directly to you, because I need your help to finish this thing and set the stage for MANY MORE THINGS! So here is the first step toward the end result: https://www.kickstarter.com/pro…/98880859/new-ted-leo-album… Thank you for caring, thank you for paying attention, and I hope you’ll join me!

Ted Leo set his goal at $85,000 and in less than 12 hours the album was funded. Some of the perks for include 7″ Singles Club ($225), Vegan meal together ($500), Personalized song ($1000), and even a private show for up to 50 people ($4500)
