★ Naked Nick Cave Package 

(includes both albums as free downloads): 

47 EUR 

[only 1 available. First come, first served. 

Will be marked as unavailable once unavailable. 

Currently still available.]

I wanted to include in this campaign personal items related to my artistic heroes who have shaped me in the past. These items mean a lot to me and I would like them to go to a good new home. This Naked Nick Cave sculpture was modelled after the famous Naked Nick Cave doll by Berlin-based artist Vicky De Bruyne. Rumour has it that it has been used to create a chocolate Naked Nick Cave that apparently was very tasty. So if you ever wanted to ... I don’t know, I’ll leave that up to your undoubtedly wild imagination ... this is your chance.

(Dimensions: approx. 30x10x2cm. Made of clay. Disclaimer: These dimensions refer to the sculpture in its entirety and not to a single body part thereof. Sorry. The sculpture is held together by a solid cable structure inside but the clay around it is a bit fragile, so I will pack it up properly but still can’t guarantee that Naked Clay Nick will make the mailing route completely unharmed. However, you could always attend to him with tender care and fix him up easily. 

Alternatively, I’m happy to hand him over in Berlin.)

### Please note that all rewards will be sent/shipped as soon as they are available.

I expect the physical CDs and LPs – currently in production – to be ready for shipment around the beginning/middle of March 2020. The official online release is 7th March 2020.###

PS:

  1. The set goal of 1.000 EUR is a symbolic amount as the overall costs are much higher; every cent helps and is appreciated, and the actual goal is to raise more money than that set symbolic goal. For every 500 EUR mark reached, I will make and publish a special video in which I will share one major secret/wisdom/fact of life (based on my experience as well as studies of philosophy, neuroscience and quantum physics) that should have an immediate benefit for everyone.The more money is raised, the more can also be invested in the subsequent promotion of the albums (such as placement on platforms and media promotion) in order to broaden the reach and enable more albums in the future.
  2. Crowdfunding means funding a project by raising money from a larger number of people. Gofundme is the world’s number 1 most trusted fundraising platform, and comes with a protection guarantee for those who donate money. So you’re in good hands.
  3. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly at [email protected] 
  4. Find out more about Blake Day on the Blake Day Facebook Page or the Blake Day Website or on the Blake Day Vimeo Page
  5. A taste of some Blake Day music:
  • Lulladie (Music Video)
  • Flame Girl (Music Video) ("Flame Girl" is the first video single off the forthcoming album)
