PROVIDENCE, RI (Hypebot) –
Creative pre-release strategies seem almost a requirement lately and The Walkmen's new album launch follows the pattern. Offered for $5 exclusively by variable price download leader AmieStreet, the album is also part of the website’s ongoing Download To Make A Difference campaign that launched earlier this month.
"You & Me" will be sold for three weeks at $5 and during that time AmieStreet will donate $5 for each purcahse to a cause of personal significance to The Walkmen. “All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease,” said Peter Bauer of The Walkmen.
