Sarah Silverman has announced that Sub Pop will be releasing her new comedy album, We Are Miracles, from her HBO comedy special of the same name, on Sept. 23, 2014. The LP will be available on vinyl, CD and digital download. The first 500 people who pre-order the vinyl will receive the album on limited teal colored vinyl, as well as a lithograph print of the cover art, which features Silverman with her hair in curlers and holding a monkey, signed by Silverman herself.
“We Are Miracles” debuted on HBO in 2013 and it is nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special. Throughout 54 minutes of hilarious stand-up comedy, Silverman took a no holds barred approach to topics, discussing everything from personal insecurities, to religion, to the value of rape jokes.
Silverman started her stand-up career in the early-1990s and after a brief stint on “Saturday Night Live,” she quickly made a name for herself as a live performer. She also saw success as a featured player on David Cross and Bob Odenkirk's sketch comedy show “Mr. Show” and as a guest on several “Comedy Central Roasts.” Silverman is also an accomplished dramatic actress having appeared in fantastic independent films like “Peep World” and “Take This Waltz.”
2014 has been a busy year for Silverman. She appeared in Seth MacFarlane's cinematic take on the western comedy, “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” and she has made several guest appearances on TV shows including “Louie,” “Maron” and “Masters of Sex.” Silverman also regularly adds videos to JASH, her YouTube partnership with Tim and Eric, Michael Cera and Reggie Watts.
This August, Silverman will be hitting the road as a part of the impressive lineup of Funny or Die's Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival. Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Louis C.K., Dave Attell and more are all scheduled to appear with Silverman at various stops along the tour.
Sub Pop is probably best known as the record label that nurtured the Seattle sound of early-1990s grunge rock by releasing early works from Mudhoney, Sonic Youth and, of course, Nirvana. Their current roster includes an impressive array of indie artists including Beach House, Dum Dum Girls and Mogwai. Over the years, Sub Pop has dabbled into the genre of comedy, releasing albums from David Cross, Patton Oswalt and Flight of the Concords.
