I released Run Away ahead of the album so I could get some experience beforehand. There’s a lot of steps I wanted to figure out, from making a final mix to promoting the release. I’ve already learned a lot I wouldn’t have otherwise.

It’s also a good way to test out new ideas. Here’s one such experiment: Run Away is now available for free in full quality. Go ahead and download yourself a copy. The song is still available on iTunes to purchase for anyone that wants to support the band.

My second idea is one I care a bit more about. Fear Salesman is a socially conscious band and I’d like to make that aspect of the music a little more explicit. So from now on 20% of all sales for Run Away will be given to Child Find. Helping missing children has long been a cause I’ve believed in and is a perfect fit to be the first charity I can assist with my music. Now iTunes purchases support both the band and a worthy charity.

So checkout the free download, read about Child Fild and, as always, let me know what you think.
