Hey hey. I need some background vocals for the title track of my next album (Out of It). I kinda want it to have a singalong vibe. Instead of just going to some of my singing buddies I thought it’d be fun to try opening it up to anyone out there.

So here’s the unfinished song with rough vocals:

Out of It [3MB MP3] (lyrics)

How to play along at home:

1. Record yourself singing along with this song as best you can. It doesn’t have to be the greatest quality, but try to keep clipping/distortion & mic pops to a minimum. Note: I need a recording of only your singing to be able to mix you in.

2. Upload your audio files to under an Attribution Creative Commons license (which gives anyone permission to use your vocals as long as they give you credit). Please tag the file with “outofit”. Update: ccMixter has a submit form specifically for this. If you’re logged in, go here.

Deadline: Monday, October 15th Sunday, November 11th.

What’s in it for you: If I use your vocals I’ll credit you in the liner notes for the song and ship you out a free copy of the record when it’s done. Woo!

Thank you! (You can see the submissions so far here.)

Update: fieryprophet has mixed all the vocals as of October 16th, check it out [5mb mp3].

It isn’t over yet I hope… I see the date has been pushed, yet I see mixed all the vocals… Well Hell, I’m doing it anyway…

Threw down my crappy track… I hope I get in, I just think it’s such an excellent idea, it’d be nice to be a part of it…

I posted this on the regular boards too because I forgot where this topic was.

This is what I put down for an explanation –

Added lyrics at the end are Tracy Chapman’s. I thought the dichotomy between Brad’s “i’ve got no time to make you believe me” and Tracy’s “You’ve gotta make me change my mind” was too tempting to resist.

And just to let you all know my delusions are no longer suffering in a state of grandeur. Thank you very much Brad. lol

I hope it’s O.K. to have those added lyrics at the end, because they do belong to someone else. Maybe they could just be real quiet? If not maybe you could just cut that part out. Sorry if it adds work to it.

The final sounds. Though the track that fieryprophet mixed — just a capella — sounds freaking awesome. Any chance someone could do an updated a capella mix with more voices?

Hmm… that’d be a cool thing to put on a bonus CD…
