Amanda Palmer and her father Jack Palmer have released their new collaborative album, entitled "You Got Me Singing," via AmandaPalmer.net and iTunes. We were sent the following comments from both Palmers:

"The main inspiration behind this record was to share songs and time with my dad," says Amanda, who was separated from her father when she was less than a year old. "It was a really good reason to spend healing time together, sharing our musical histories, all poetically punctuated by the fact that I was seven months pregnant when we recorded. I knew that from my post at the mixing desk and the mic, this music was being heard in the womb, and so the song selection was really important...we didn't want this album to sound corny, we wanted it to sound like the connective tissue between three generations. The songs had to be simple."

Jack Palmer, who is 72 and sings choral music regularly for the National Cathedral in Washington DC, says "I believe nothing is more powerful than love, and that nothing expresses it better than singing. It was one of Amanda's songs that began healing our fractured relationship. Years later, I hope the love that went into this project will perhaps touch listeners in the same way."
