The Walkmen Release New LP Early for $5, Benefits Cancer Research and Treatment

You have $5. Now, you could go to Burger King and buy a BK Value Meal. (YUM.) You could get a set of 12 rolls of party streamers. (FUN.) Or you could get a novelty shot glass. (NICE!) But you won't, because The Walkmen have just announced that they are exclusively teaming with® to sell their new album, You & Me, for a measly $5! (WOWOWOWOOWOOWOW!!) And it's on sale now. Never mind that you've already downloaded the leaked version; the album's proceeds will go to benefit cancer research and treatment.

This early release is part of's Download To Make A Difference campaign. “All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease,” said Peter Bauer of The Walkmen. “This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”

You & Me will be physically released August 19 by Gigantic Music. Or you can buy it for $5 now.
