It’s rare to find an artist who is so thrilled to be dropped by a record label that not only does she happily made it public on her Web site, but then posts a new song free. That’s what Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer did yesterday when she parted ways with Roadrunner Records after seven years.

Here is what she wrote on her blog:

as many of you know, i’ve been fighting very, very hard to get off the label for the better part of two years.
for the past seven years, anything i have written and recorded (solo or with my band, The Dresden Dolls) has technically been owned and under the ultimate control of the label, but no longer.
after endless legal bullshit, it’s over, i’ve been DROPPED, RELEASED, LET GO, whatever you wanna call it. in other words: i am FREE AT LAST!!!!!! RAAHH!!

She even wrote a letter to the record company,which also posted on the blog.

The singer posted a new song called “The Truth,” which was freshly recorded a few days ago. You can download the folkish song here.

She had recently released a new album with Jason Webley as Evelyn Evelyn.
