Jesper Munk ist zurück im Studio. Ein Prozess, der neben Zeit, Nerven und Kreativität vor allem eins erfordert: Geld. Die Produktion von “Under the Covers” erfolgt ohne Label. Um das neue Album fertigstellen zu können, benötigt der Musiker Unterstützung. Über eine Crowdfundingkampagne, die noch bis zum 30.03. läuft, sollen 14.400 € gesammelt werden. Damit sollen neben den Studiokosten vor allem alle Mitwirkenden an der Platte fair entlohnt werden. Etwas, das besonders in der aktuellen Zeit von unschätzbarem Wert ist. Derzeit wurde das erste Crowdfundingziel von 9000 € erreicht, welches bereits die Band, das Recording, Mixing & Mastering sowie Lizensierung und Equipment finanzieren kann. Doch zu einer erfolgreichen Veröffentlichung gehören natürlich auch Vieos, Promo sowie der Vertrieb. Für sich selbst bleibt Munk modest and hopes that there may be a few thalers left over for a small crate of beer for the rehearsal room.

But why is Jesper Munk making a cover album?

In his crowdfunding text, Jesper Munk explains this as follows: “Due to the events of last year, many of us cultural workers have found ourselves in the digital space. As has already been discussed and is well known, this limited space for our exchange offers little context, hardly any atmosphere, but an abundance of information. To counteract this numbing overload of stimuli, music has proven to be the most effective antidote for me. So my idea was to record songs for you that saved me from this deafness. I hope they do the same for you. "

Those who are willing to contribute to the crowdfunding will of course also be rewarded: In addition to a digital version of the album two weeks before the set release date, supporters also have the chance to get prints of exclusive artwork. Seldom has there been a better chance to hang a real Munch ... um ... Munk in the living room.
