Long-time folk/rock/music activist singer, Ani DiFranco has eighteen studio albums to her credit since her emergence back in 1990 with the self-released debut, Ani DiFranco. Since then, she has followed up each year’s release with another the next year. Over time, she has developed a nice fan-base that keeps her active in many ways including shows throughout the world. From a ┬áRock and Roll standpoint, if you can make a nice living doing what you want (it doesn’t have to be extravagant), then you’re doing right by yourself. Ani DiFranco is doing right by herself.

All her music is normally funded by her label, Righteous Babe. However, with a new album on the horizon, Ani DiFranco has resorted to the rising popular methodology of Pledge Music to produce her latest.

Her newest album, Binary, is scheduled for release on June 9. It will contain eleven new songs that – in typical Ani DiFranco fashion – will relate to world and personal issues. Binary will focus on “relationships and responsibility to each other” as its message to the world.

Binary will be released on CD, DD, and 140g-weight vinyl LP.
