MUSIC: AMANDA PALMER "RUNS IN THE FAMILY"



"Runs In The Family" is a single off of Who Killed Amanda Palmer, the forthcoming debut solo effort by Amanda Palmer, lead singer, pianist, and lyricist/composer of the "Brechtian punk cabaret" duo The Dresden Dolls.

The album was mostly recorded in Nashville, TN with collaborator Ben Folds and will be released on Roadrunner Records (also home to The Dresden Dolls). The name of the album is a reference to the series Twin Peaks, which revolves around events surrounding the death of Laura Palmer.

Certain tracks will also feature Folds on percussion and keyboards and former Rasputina member Zoë Keating on cello.

The magazine Alternative Press named this album one of the "Most Anticipated Albums of 2008".

On April 20, 2008, Amanda confirmed in an interview with Penguins in the Desert on WHRW, Binghamton University's radio station, that the release date would be September 16, 2008.
