Cho Dependent, Margaret’s new comedy music album with several musical guests, is set to be released on August 24th.
“I have wanted to make an album like this forever. I love comedy music!”
The lyrics on Cho Dependent, which tackle issues of sex, drugs, rock & roll (and lice), may be laugh-inducing, but Cho has made no compromises when it comes to the quality of the songwriting and production. “Over the years of being an intense music geek I got to meet a lot of my heroes and I tricked them all into writing songs with me,” explains Cho. “Most comics want to be rock stars, and most rock stars want to be comics, so it was an easy exchange.”
“There are so many amazing people I got to work with on this album,” Cho continues, “Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Tegan and Sara, Andrew Bird, Ani DiFranco, Garrison Starr, Meghan Toohey, Brendan Benson, Rachael Yamagata, Carl Newman, Grant Lee Phillips, Patty Griffin, Ben Lee, Kevin Barnes — I still have to pinch myself!”
Cho Dependent will be released on August 24th. You can preview one of the songs from the album, “Eat Shit and Die” (a collaboration with Grant Lee Phillips), at the album page here. If you buy tickets during the Fan Club pre-sale will receive a download code at the close of the pre-sale for “No Offense,” a bonus track Margaret collaborated on with Susie Suh and Garrison Starr.
We’ll be offering more bonus tracks in advance of the album release, and an exclusive pre-order available only on Margaret’s website next month, so stay tuned!
