At this point, it's become old hat for artists to offer their fans special goodies as part of album pre-orders, like t-shirts, posters, lithographs and the like. But fans who pre-order the new Five for Fighting album Bookmarks will get something extra-special.
John Ondrasik , the artist who records under the name Five for Fighting, is offering the first 50 people who pre-order Bookmarks a unique bonus: an autographed piano key. You can pre-order now at FiveforFighting.com . Unfortunately, those won't last long, but there are plenty of other bundles you can grab. Among the extras included with your order, depending on how much you want to pay: t-shirts, prints of the lyrics of Five For Fighting's latest single "What If," autographed CDs and the new album on vinyl. If you pre-order a digital version, you'll get the album track "Rebel" as a free download.
In addition, Wal-Mart is offering an exclusive version of the disc that comes with a DVD of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. The first 300 of those will be personally autographed by Jon as well.
Bookmarks arrives in stores September 17. The "What If" lyric video premieres Wednesday.
