Tune into WFMU @ 11pm to catch Anya appearing live and playing songs on The Goddamn Dave Hill Show. Listen live online or via the WFMU app or on actual radio at 91.1FM if you're in the NY / NJ area.
Even though the Serious Love EP hits stores on June 16, you can still pre-order any of the rewards offered on PledgeMusic (signed vinyl, posters, tees, test pressings, special experiences, Skype calls, lyric sheets, etc) through June 23rd!
If you pre-order the AccessPass, you'll receive high quality FLAC files of the Serious Love EP plus Anya's last full-length (Paper Plane), 6 extra songs, 4 b-sides from Felony Flats (only available on the deluxe digital release) and the Serious Love video. If you pre-order through PledgeMusic, you'll also receive access to dozens of updates from Anya about the making of the EP, meanings of songs, lyrics, etc.
Hi! The full update can be seen on my PledgeMusic page HERE.
Update: "Plays Well With Others" is not happening at the moment. I’m holding off on my 20+ song opus of collaborations for a number of reasons, the main one being that 20 feels like too many in this day and age of short attention spans, and the second one being that my recent single “Serious Love” (cowritten and produced by Ian Keaggy) got such a nice response that Ian and I figured we should write another song and release a cohesive, beautiful collection on a 4-song EP called the SERIOUS LOVE EP.
I’d like this to be a very special release, so I’m going to use the funds we’ve raised thus far to press up limited edition vinyl (which will come with a digital download card so you can have the songs in your digital music library) and to hire someone to help with radio and publicity.
If you should choose the vinyl option, you can find it below for only $24.99 plus shipping and handling.
I will not be pressing up CDs of the SERIOUS LOVE EP, so if you already pre-ordered the signed CD, you will receive vinyl instead. If you want to cancel or amend your order go to: pledgemusic.com/pledges, Click: “Contact Us About This Order” under Anya’s project, Write to the customer service team and ask them to Please upgrade your order to vinyl instead of CD OR "Please cancel my order for the CD”—up to you. Either way, I will NOT be pressing up CDs for this EP. You will be given 3 weeks to update your orders before being automatically refunded.
If you opted for the $14.99 digital pass, you don’t need to do anything. You will receive the SERIOUS LOVE EP as a digital download as well as a video of SERIOUS LOVE (the single), a download of my 2016 release PAPER PLANE, and a personalized postcard with original art and a single.
Thanks again for supporting me through this entire process! I’m sorry about the switch, but I’m confident this release will be a perfect little gem to add to my collection. I hope you like it, too!

new singles + spotify playlist! View this email in your browserHello, friends.
Wow, what at a week, huh? I hope you're all surviving and thriving regardless. Send me some good news!
Here’s mine—in 6 parts:
1. “Shut Up”!
Not only will one of my favorite songs off Paper Plane—“Shut Up”—be featured in an upcoming episode of Riverdale, it also has its own video, shot by Indio Martinez, in which I got to throw paper planes off a rooftop in Brooklyn! Check it out here.
2. A show!
It’s been awhile since I’ve played a show in New York and awhile since I’ve hosted a podcast, so I’ll be doing a special night at Joe’s Pub called The Anya Marina Show featuring a night of comedy and music (think: Storytellers meets The Moth). Please reserve your tickets now!
Sun Jan 29, 2017 @ Joe's Pub - 9:30pm
3. New song!
This past week comedian / bestie Nikki Glaser + producer / bestie Roger Greenawalt and I tried to work out our distress through songwriting and companionship. The result is either a protest song or a song about heartbreak—or both—but we’re calling it “This Is F*cked.” Grab it here—all proceeds go to Planned Parenthood, an organization we love and support. Do it!
4. More new songs!
Have you gotten my new singles Ghost Walk, Tethered To The Dark, and Free (feat. Jewel + Tristan Prettyman)?
Do you have Paper Plane yet?
Go get those at iTunes or Amazon!
Are you on Spotify? Follow me at anyamarina, won’t you? I am just starting to use it, check out songs and playlists and create my own. Here’s one with a lot of my favorite songs for my favorite activity: Public Weeping!
6. New album!
I’m thinking about releasing an extra long album (XL LP?) of collaborations near and dear to my heart which I will need your help with and feedback on. Please look for a PledgeMusic campaign coming soon…
Thanks for getting this far. I sincerely hope you're all holding up and feeling ok!
