Amanda Palmer has announced her first solo album in more than six years.

The Dresden Dolls singer and pianist's third solo LP, 'There Will Be No Intermission', is set to arrive on March 8, which is International Women’s Day.

Recorded over a single month in Los Angeles with John Congleton, who previoulsy engineered and produced 2012's 'Theatre Is Evil', the LP was entirely crowd-funded. Speaking about the 10 songs contained on the album, Palmer said:

"Most of these songs were exercises in survival. This isn’t really the record that I was planning to make. But loss and death kept happening in real-time, and these songs became my therapeutic arsenal of tools for making sense of it all.

I've never been nervous about releasing a record before, but this one is different. The rise of global fascism alongside the spreading fire of #MeToo has forged a louder megaphone for all women, and we’re all seeing that radical truth is infectious. I feel more urgency than ever to share the naked truth of my experiences. The kind of stories that I’m sharing on this record - abortion, miscarriage, cancer, grief, the darker sides of parenthood - have been therapeutic and frightening to write. But every time I play them for my friends and fans, the nodding heads of empathy have lit a fire under my ass to record and release them."

Palmer has also shared the album's first single, Drowning in the Sound, also written using crowd-sourced comments from Palmer's blog and exploring hidden connections between political unrest, the impending uncertainty of Hurricane Harvey, climate change, the solar eclipse, internet hate and Taylor Swift. Stream the track and view the album's cover art and tracklist, below.

Lastly, to accompany the album, Palmer has collaborated with art team Kahn and Selesnick to create and independently release a book of over 50 theatrical photographic portraits taken in and around Palmer’s New York home. The portfolio—also titled 'There Will Be No Intermission'—will be available exclusively in hardback as well as in a softcover edition at her forthcoming world tour, set to circle theaters around the globe beginning in North America in March 2019.
