“Drowning In The Sound,” is the first single off Amanda Palmer’s newly announced forthcoming album There Will Be No Intermission, is nearly vaudevillian in its heightened drama, all apocalyptic proclamations and barking cello stabs, while Palmer enunciates her verses like a theater kid who tripped, fell and ended up an end-times cult leader. The song was also fashioned in a crowd-sourced manner—its lyrics are pulled from comments on Palmer’s blog, and many of the comments reference Hurricane Harvey, which had made landfall the day before the song was written. It’s all overwhelmingly desperate and bracing, something that Palmer says exemplifies the style of the album. “Most of these songs were exercises in survival,” she said in a statement. “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.”
