Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy has shared a new song online from his alter-ego Scott Tanner from his Parks and Recreation cameo role. Tanner was the frontman of local band Land Ho! who were successfully reunited for a benefit concert in the show. Tweedy aka Tanner has now released ‘Cold Water’, which is taken from the recently-announced debut ‘The Awesome Album’ from Dwyer’s fictional band in the show, Mouse Rat. The 15-track album lands on August 27th via Dualtone, and will be given a limited-edition vinyl run and merchandise range.
“Any creative business coming out of Pawnee is tied to Haverford,” Dualtone president Paul Roper said in a statement. “From Rent-a-Swag to Tommy Fresh cologne and Tom’s Bistro, not to mention his business ideas not yet formed like the scented phone, talking tissues, contact lenses that display text messages, and the glitter-infused laundry detergent Sparkle Suds, partnering with Entertainment 720’s hype machine was essential. The man is an idea factory.”
