The singer, who is married to writer Neil Gaiman, made the pledge on the Kickstarter website.
Introducing the appeal, Palmer wrote: "This is my first BIG, LEGIT studio album undertaking since breaking from a major label. i've spent four years writing the songs for this record, and more recently, putting together the perfect band, The Grand Theft Orchestra. (sic)"
She continued: "Since i'm now without a giant label to front the gazillions of dollars that it always takes to manufacture and promote a record this big, i'm coming to you to gather funds so that i have the capital to put it out with a huge f**king bang."
Palmer has offered varying rewards for different levels of donation, saying of $5,000 payments: "Back this and ye shall receive one house party with a ukulele-wielding AFP (scheduled with the team... deliverable within the next 18 months, but hopefully sooner... pretty much the next time i hit your area. if you're in tunisia i'll GET THERE."
At the time of writing, five people have backed her to the tune of $5,000. A maximum of 25 people will receive the house party reward. The project has already gained more than double the $100,000 sought.
