New Robyn Hitchcock album due April – Listen

The legendary (and we use that word frugally) Robyn Hitchcock will release his new record on the Yep Roc label on 21st April. The 21st studio recording (spookily) and first-ever eponymous release of the British artist’s four-decade career, Robyn Hitchcock is available for pre-order now at the official Yep Roc Store. Described by its creator as “an ecstatic work of negativity,” it’s heralded by the metamorphic new single, “I Want To Tell You About What I Want” which premiered at NPR Music last week but which you can listen to below. The album was recorded in Nashville, TN, with producer Brendan Benson and backing by players that includes guitarist Annie McCue, bassist Jon Estes, and drummer Jon Radford. Harmony vocal contributions come courtesy of Emma Swift, Grant Lee Phillips, Gillian Welch, and Wilco’s Pat Sansone.  Those will be some harmonies!
