Former Slint guitarist David Pajo has played alongside loads of stars musicians throughout his career, among them Will Oldham, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Zwan, Interpol, and Stereolab, and on the side he made music under his solo monikers Aerial M and Papa M. The last we heard from the latter was over a decade ago, when Pajo released Whatever, Mortal in 2001. Today, Drag City announced that Papa M will release a brand new album titled Highway Songs in November, and debuted its first single. “Walking On Coronado” is a gorgeous, uplifting few minutes of spindly acoustic guitar. Listen below.
