Derek Webb – Democracy Vol 2

21st Feb 11 (Mon) 6 comments

Enrollment / voting for Derek Webb‘s Democracy Vol 2 goes live today.  Those who participate will not only receive the exclusive album, but will democratically decide what songs Derek will record.

Want Derek to record Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Megadeth, Slayer, or Mary Poppins?  Well, sign up and vote…

Price for 2011’s volume is only $5 for 10 songs, one cover song each month from March through December 2011.  You can still by the 2010 version (the 12 songs in Democracy Volume 1) for $8, or buy it bundled with Democracy Volume 2 for $12 – a steal for 22 songs. Nominations are immediate with Volume 2 upon purchase (after clicking through the purchase).  Voting for Democracy nominations ends March 1st.

My nominations: Tori Amos “Crucify,” Lady Gaga “Telephone,” and Alice in Chains “Would?” – not favorite songs ever, but I’d be curious to hear Derek’s take on them.  For a taste, here’s what he covered for us last year:

  • January 2010: The Beatles – While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  • February: Coldplay – Fix You
  • March: Bob Dylan – The Times They Are A-Changin’
  • April: Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul
  • May: Sufjan Stevens – Chicago *a personal fave*
  • June: U2 – Where the Streets Have No Name
  • July: Huey Lewis & the News – Power of Love
  • August: The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby *a personal fave*
  • September: Simon & Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence
  • October: Radiohead – Karma Police *a personal fave*
  • November: Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah
  • December: Robert Robinson – Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

Per Derek, he has a few rules imposed on himself…

  1. I do no preparation.  A few of last years songs I had never heard before the morning I recorded them.
  2. I play all the instruments and do all the recording/mixing myself, in my studio.
  3. I only allow myself 24 hours from the start to the finish of each song.
