Throwback soulman Cody ChesnuTT hasn’t released an album since 2002’s aptly-named The Headphone Masterpiece. Ten years, people. Ten years. That’s a long time to wait, but like Radiohead and creepy abstinence-before-marriage-dads say, true love waits. And that’s what ChesnuTT’s new song, “That’s Still Mama,” is about: love for your moms, the love you feel when ChesnuTT’s silken voice winds through your ears and into your left ventricle. You can check that one out below; it’s a teaser for dude’s new album, Landing on a Hundred, which you, yes YOU can make happen via the magical, wish-granting internet genie known as Kickstarter.
So, apart from the chance to make a new Cody ChesnuTT album a reality, what do you get, you greedy little lantern rubber? Well, Cody’s gotcha covered. Donors will receive tokens of appreciation ranging from copies of the album, lithographs of the album art, custom eco-friendly t-shirts, custom beaded bracelets, a grab bag featuring Mr. C’s favorite books/CDs/movies, tickets to a show, and dinner with ChesnuTT himself. ChesnuTT is currently about halfway toward his $20,000 goal. You can learn more about the project, the aforementioned “tokens of appreciation” and dig some ChesnuTT multimedia on his Kickstarter page. Landing on a Hundred is due in October.
