Kate Pierson steps out from B-52's

Kate Pierson - co-lead vocalist and founding member of the B-52's - has announced her debut solo album Guitars and Microphones, released Feb. 17 via Lazy Meadow Music/Kobalt Label Services. Produced by Tim Anderson (Ima Robot) and featuring Nick Valensi of The Strokes on several tracks, Kate collaborated on songwriting with Sia who also executive produced the album.

The song “Bring Your Arms” is available on iTunes as an instant-grat MP3 with Guitars and Microphones pre-order.
A CD digipak is also available for pre-order at Amazon. 

“Bring Your Arms” was co-written by Sia and Chris Braide. It came about when Kate and Sia witnessed a sea turtle egg rescue while on a trip to Tulum in Mexico. Environmental activists themselves, they found it moving and thus Sia started the song for Kate. A portion of the proceeds for “Bring Your Arms” will be donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
