555% is the fourth solo album by the English rock musician Ginger, released under the name Ginger Wildheart. The full album of thirty tracks was only available online for a limited time; a 12-track version of the album titled 100% has been released commercially.

Background[edit]

The album was recorded over three sessions in England, France, and Denmark during October 2011 and January 2012.[citation needed] Funding for the recording of the album was raised by Ginger's Triple Album Project managed through PledgeMusic. When the project raised significantly more money than Ginger had estimated would be required to record the album, he announced that the album would be titled 555% when donations reached that percentage of the original goal. The success of the fundraising effort encouraged Ginger to make extra songs available online while offering special CD and vinyl packages to contributors.[1] Via the PledgeMusic website, persons who pledged money to the project were allowed to download completed tracks before they were released in other forms.

The first track to be made available for download by pledgers was the rough mix of "You're The One, You're The One, Yeah, I Know You're The One, You're The One (Yeah I Know You're The One)."[2] The thirty tracks recorded for the project were made available to pledgers in three batches of ten, on 23 March, 30 March, and 6 April 2012 respectively. On each date, the tracks were made available at 5:55 pm England time.[3][4]
