Our favorite child actor turned rocker delivers Rabbit Fur Coat in January on Team Love Records (an offshoot of Saddle Creek). The Rilo Kiley/Postal Service siren tells MTV News:
I’m going to [credit it to] Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins. We’re friends with these twins from Louisville, Kentucky, and they sang with me on a lot of songs ? a bunch of harmonizing, a bunch of classic-sounding songs.
Indie Rock All-Stars M. Ward, Conor Oberst, and Ben Gibbard all collaborate on the record.
It’s a giant melting pot of the people that I’ve met over the last couple years. I think the production is a lot more pointedly stripped-down [than Rilo Kiley]. I kind of wanted to let the songs just exist and let the voices tell the story, rather than the guitar and production. I kind of wanted the songs to just kind of float around.
Sorry, no MP3s yet. If you can’t get enough Jenny, you can currently catch RK opening for Coldplay or rent Troop Beverly Hills.
UPDATE: Live title track action! Thanks Buddha.
