Paul Allen is putting out an album
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has a lot of titles, including philanthropist, inventor, investor, cancer survivor and author. Today, he tweeted that he'd be adding a new credential to his already-impressive resume: Recording artist.
Allen shared the Amazon link to his first album, which he recorded alongside his band, the Underthinkers. Containing 13 tracks, "Everything at Once" features celebrity guests including Joe Walsh, Derek Trucks, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart, Chrissie Hynde, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos and Ivan Neville, according to the online liner notes.
Every song on the album is either written or co-written by Allen himself, but he's not looking to add to his great fortune with the proceeds; all of the money that the album makes is being donated to the EMP.
In his tweet, Allen said that he was "excited" about the record.
The album will be released in August.
