We’re pleased to announce the new EP from WHY?!!! Golden Tickets is a collection of personalized “theme songs” for and about seven specific WHY? fans. Over the the course of several months, Yoni and Josiah Wolf internet-stalked their fans for the purpose of crafting the homage which would end up on this album.
The concept, Yoni Wolf explains, was that, “We would write a theme song for one customer who came to the [WHY?] web store and bought something every month. Like Mighty Mouse. It would be a song about that person. We’d read all about them on Facebook and Twitter, and sometimes even go so far as to contact their significant other to ask them questions. Then I would write the song on piano, and my brother would take the skeleton of lyrics & piano and turn it into a fully realized arrangement.”
WHY?’s first proper release for JNR, “Golden Tickets” will be released on September 17th and is currently available for pre-order limited edition 10” gold vinyl, 10” black vinyl, and CD. The gold vinyl is limited to 700 hand-numbered copies, and as a special treat, one of these 700 copies contains an actual golden ticket. The lucky person who receives this golden ticket will have a WHY? song written about him or her. No foolin.
