Taking a page from Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails’ recent forays into tiered and pay-as-you-wish pricing strategies for albums, former NIN drummer Josh Freese has developed a wacky but potentially smart pricing system for his new album.
At the first levels you can purchase the CD/DVD, or digital version of the album. Next is the $50 version where you get a t-shirt and a 5 minute thank-you phone call from Freese. $500 will get 15 people a signed CD, t-shirt, cymbal, diner with Freese and a session in a sensory deprivation tank. And it goes upwards in price, with the strange and wonderful bonuses getting stacked ever higher.
But there’s more, way more. For two lucky fans with a lot of disposable income ($20,000 and $75,000) you get to participarte in a carnival of “weird and cool stuff” with Freese and his famous friends.
