Earlier this summer Mary launched the crowd-funding campaign for her new album with double drummer outfit Your Governement, which has now come to an end. The money raised will contribute to the completion of the album, of which recording and mixing are now finished, with only mastering left to do. Listen to a teaser of the album here, watch a video of the studio sessions here and watch the Berlin underground star-studded episodes one, two, three, four, five and six of her Between two drummers show.
