Don’t Share His Album, And He (Probably) Won’t Share Your Naked Selfie

If you want Loke Rahbek’s new album, you’ll have to email him a naked selfie, and if you want to listen to it, you’ll need access to a cassette player.

Rahbek, an underground “noise musician,” from Copenhagen, wants to create a bond of intimacy between himself and his audience, so he is only accepting one form of payment for his latest work: a full-frontal nude selfie with the title of the album — “The Wild Palms” — on your body or in the picture.

“They are going to be in a file, and they are going to stay there” Rahbek told FACT magazine. “I wanted it to be secret, because you know if we’re talking about intimacy, nothing is stronger than keeping secrets together.”

Don’t worry — he won’t show the world your naked body, unless you share his album, which will be created in the name of his alter ego, Croatian Amor.

“When you share your work with someone, it can be like showing your own skin – you are stripping naked,” he said. “So I ask that anyone who gets the music does not share it with anyone. And I promise in return to not share those photos with anyone.

I like this idea that it is a sort of a membership card to a society, or a gang, or something like that,” he added. “And in order to take part you have to put a bit of yourself in there.”

If the new album is anything like this gem, you’ll want to keep your clothes on:

But if you do want to join this creepy club, you have until Sunday July 22 to email a naked selfie to thewildpalms1989@gmail.com.

UPDATE: 

Christopher Hansell, who apparently works for Croatian Amor’s record label said via Twitter that no one’s photos will be shared, regardless of whether the record is leaked.

This is comforting news?
