Res is currently hosting her Indiegogo campaign for her upcoming Reset album but has launched another effort to share new music with her fans on a weekly basis. Reset Mondays will unveil a new song at the beginning of the week until the release of the new album. “Risk It All” is the latest song to post and it’s a free-spirited rock track about taking chances. You can sign-up for Reset Mondays on her site as her Indiegogo project gains momentum.
Res releases her new single, “Hollow” and starts her Indiegogo campaign for her Reset album. The last time we heard from Res she released Refried Mac, her brilliant EP of cover songs in tribute to Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. That project came on the heels of her 2011 Habits Of The Heart album with Talib Kweli as Idle Warship. Reset will be her sophomore solo album and there are all kinds of perks available from the campaign including the obvious copies of the project and the options to go on a hike with her and have her cover a song for you. Listen to the Jordan Davis-produced “Hollow” above and see the Indiegogo campaign here.
