Because I have had this ukele article on the instrument’s emerging new popularity that I’ve been wanting to share with you all forever, but had no way of tying it in to anything else. So here comes Amanda Palmer, I think the hardest working musician in the biz today, she has put out an Evelyn Evelyn album this year and now she’s coming out with a Ukele Cover Album of Radiohead songs. Here’s a tune. The album is released July 17.

UPDATE: Watch Palmer play the entire album

NME reports that, well, Stereogum reported that the David Bowie Tribute Album, ‘We Were So Turned On‘ comes out on September 6, 2010. The story also includes a tracklisting.
