Money Talks, But Naked Selfies Sing For This Artist's New Album

Let's face it: Getting listeners to exchange money for music is a pretty tough trade these days. Come to think of it, it's probably easier to get a random stranger to text you a naked photo of themself. This is presumably the logic behind Copenhagen artist Loke Rahbek's latest endeavor The Wild Palms, which will be released on cassette in exchange for individuals' full-frontal nude self-portraits. Single copies of the album will be made for each photo submission, which requires its willing models to write "The Wild Palms" somewhere on their naked bods.

"When you share your work with someone, it can be like showing your own skin you are stripping naked," he explained in a FACT interview. "So I ask that anyone who gets the music does not share it with anyone. And I promise in return to not share those photos with anyone. They are going to be in a file, and they are going to stay there. I wanted it to be secret, because you know if we're talking about intimacy, nothing is stronger than keeping secrets together."

Yeah, yeah, yeah... We've all heard that story before.

If you're a brave fan of Rahbek, or you're simply a wacky voyeurist, you can send your photos to thewildpalms1989@gmail.com. The promotion ends July 22nd, so get strippin'!
