Amanda Palmer has a new album coming out and NPR is streaming it for free!

On March 8, Amanda "Fucking" Palmer (previously) will release There Will Be No Intermission, her third studio album and the first release in six long years: it's an ambitious 71 minutes long, and the whole thing is streaming as a preview on NPR's First Listen.

I recommend starting with "Judy Blume" for sheer tear-jerking, and the two long confessionals, "The Ride" and "A Mother's Confession."

Palmer's touring with the album, with dates across the USA and Europe; the purchase packages include gatefold vinyl, an elaborate accompanying book, and all the usuals.
