There Will Be No Intermission is the upcoming third solo studio album by American musician Amanda Palmer. It is scheduled to be released on March 8, 2019, through Cooking Vinyl. It was crowdfunded through Patreon and recorded by Palmer in collaboration with John Congleton over the course of a month. It will be supported by a 2019-2020 tour.[1] According to the Amazon link to the album, the Vinyl version of There Will Be No Intermission will be available March 29, 2019[2]

Background[edit]

Palmer stated that "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."[1] She also said that "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."[3]

Promotion[edit]

The demos of "Bigger on the Inside," (original version featuring Zoë Keating), "The Thing About Things," "A Mother's Confession," "Machete," "Drowning in the Sound," and "Judy Blume" were all released as singles on March 9, 2015, May 26, 2015, February 25, 2016, March 9, 2016, August 31, 2017, and February 12, 2018 respectively. "Judy Blume" and "Look Mummy, No Hands" were previously included on the 2013 live album An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer.
