This week, mega singer and songwriter Melissa Etheridge took to crowdfunding portal, PledgeMusic, to raise funds for her upcoming album MEmphis Rock and Soul. The new record is set to hit stores on October 7th and will feature Etheridge’s new single Hold On, I’m Coming.
The campaign reads:
“Melissa Etheridge has done some pretty gutsy things in her stellar career. She’s shown no fear in forthrightly standing up for her truths, both in her songs and her life. But as an artist she’s never quite laid it on the line like she does on MEmphis Rock and Soul, scheduled for release on October 7, 2016 via Stax Records, a division of Concord Music Group. On MEmphis Rock and Soul, Etheridge brings her powerful voice and passionate vision to some of the era-defining treasures of modern music.”
The album’s tracks are shown below.
- Memphis Train
- Respect Yourself (People Stand Up)
- Who’s Making Love
- Hold On, I’m Coming
- I’ve Been Loving You Too Long (To Stop Now)
- Any Other Way
- I’m A Lover
- Rock Me Baby
- I Forgot To Be Your Lover
- Wait A Minute
- Born Under A Bad Sign
- Dreams To Remember
Besides pre-ordering the new album, other rewards for pledging funds towards the campaign include t-shirts, signed vinyl, signed CD, limited edition screen print, birthday greeting/custom voicemail, handwritten lyrics, songwriting lesson, and guitar lessons. Etheridge is currently prepping for her upcoming tour, which kicks off next week. Take a listen to Hold On I’m Coming below.
