Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website where people posts projects that they want funded and other pledge cash to make it happen.

Palmer’s Kickstarter hit her first $100,000 goal in the first day and hit $368,000 in two days, breaking the record for the site.

As of now, the fundraiser for a new album, art book and tour, has hit $1,042,835  via 21,703 backers. It closes tomorrow.

She finished recording her new album in Melbourne, the first since 2008, with her new band the Grand Theft Orchestra.

Palmer has posted a blog on her site outlining where all the money will be going, and it’s a fascinating insight into the business behind the music.

Backers who pledge between one and five dollars will get a digital download of her new album, and the bonuses expand exponentially with each pledge, up to one backer who has pledged more than $10,000 and will be rewarded with a dinner, a portrait painted by Palmer, singed copies of exclusive deluxe vinyl and art, as well as the music, book and show tickets.

Check out the video for the project below.
