Mike Doughty Will Record A Song Just For You


Mike Doughty
Mike Doughty wrote a song called "Dogs/Demons." It's never been released, officially or otherwise; never been played at a show. But his biggest fans will have the opportunity to get their very own version of it, on the very device on which Doughty recorded it, through a sly and playful new art project.

Fans who purchase "Dogs/Demons" can choose between three different keys in which Doughty will play the song (C, D, or D-sharp), and the option to add a bridge for an additional price. And Doughty will record it onto a digital recorder, along with the buyer's name and the date and location of the recording, and send that digital recorder straight to the fan, signed and numbered by Doughty himself. The fan gets a unique piece of art: the only version of that performance of the song, anywhere in the world.

The base price for this exclusive, customized piece is $543.09, with an additional charge of $267.18 for the optional bridge. Doughty is willing to record a personal message, in addition to the purchaser's name, date, and other basic details; the charge for a personal message is $35,335.53. For more details, click here.

"Dogs/Demons" is not Doughty's first foray into unique offerings for fans. This week, he completed The Lo-Fi Lodge, a subscription program through which fans received a previously unreleased recording each week for 32 weeks, including song demos and other rarities.
