Binary pre-order

Order Ani's new album BINARY!

Ani DiFranco’s new album Binary is coming June 9! ORDER CDs, vinyl, and other special offerings exclusively through PledgeMusic and receive the AccessPass to unique updates on the album. You’ll also get an instant download of 3 tracks: “Play God,” “Deferred Gratification,” and “Binary” live from Folk Alley.

“I always title a record from the song that seems to be at its core,” Ani says. “An underlying theme in the songs, and in the feminism I want to engage society with, is the idea that autonomy is a fallacy—nothing exists except in relationship to something else. We are, in some senses individuals with individual liberties and unique powers, but that’s only a surface story.”

This is an album focused on our relationships and responsibility to each other, and Ani is taking this moment to connect more deeply with you via the PledgeMusic campaign, sharing more of her musings and artwork through exclusive updates.

Binary includes the singles “Play God” and “Deferred Gratification,” with rhythms held down by bassist Todd Sickafoose and drummer Terence Higgins and contributions from violinist Jenny Scheinman, keyboard wizard Ivan Neville, the legendary Maceo Parker, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, and Gail Ann Dorsey. Mixed by Grammy-winning mixer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Sheryl Crow).

1. Binary
2. Pacifist’s Lament
3. Zizzing
4. Play God
5. Alrighty
6. Telepathic
7. Even More
8. Spider
