Spike Lee wants your music
Acclaimed director invites unsigned musicians to contribute to new film
Spike Lee is busy finishing up his latest movie, “Da Sweet Blood of Jesus,” financed entirely through the online crowdfunding website kickstater.com. According to a Feb. 10 Kickstarter project email, he is crowd sourcing music for the soundtrack as well.
Lee is currently accepting “submissions for only R&B and rap songs by independent/unsigned artists,” says the email. “The music is inconsequential to the subject matter of the film.”
Lee’s team will be accepting submissions until Feb. 28. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to be considered, emails must provide the following information in the following order: genre, artist name, song title, lyrics by, music by, produced by, publisher, length of track, email, phone number. Music submissions must be in the MP3 format.
