Eugene Mirman I'm Sorry (You're Welcome) on Limited Edition 7LP Box Set + Download
A Singular Experience For The Modern Listener!
Eugene Mirman's epic new release I'm Sorry (You're Welcome) is a 9-volume, 7-LP comedy album that will be available in October 2015 from Sub Pop. I'm Sorry (You're Welcome) is the culmination of a long-time dream of Eugene's. It includes a vast array of sounds that can be described as varyingly poignant, erotic, practical, romantic, mind-altering, educational, and humorous. Need to learn Russian? Eugene provides. Meditation sounds? Eugene provides. The sound of a grown man crying? Eugene provides. Oh, also, this release contains a full set of live standup recorded at Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA June 6, 7, and 8, 2014.
"I have wanted to make this album for a long time. I first thought of the idea about 10 years ago, originally as a 100-CD album (Somebody said I'd only have to sell 5,000 copies to have a Gold record! Take that, Peter Frampton!). Basically, what began as a half-joke, half-dream that I'd sometimes mention to friends, morphed into a much-more feasible idea of a 10-disc album (I think of things in terms of CDs because I grew up in the 90s, just like 80-year-olds still refer to radio as "The Invisible President").
"I decided to start working on it. In general, I make a lot of lists. So, I created a document on my desktop called, "The Box Set CD Blueprint," (even though there won't be a CD version of this album, because only Neil Young has a CD player and he won't let anyone borrow it) and began coming up with ideas for discs. Some of these ideas made it onto this album, some morphed into something similar and some turned out to be funny-sounding, but less-practical once I started thinking about what it would be." - Eugene Mirman
