Ted Leo most recently worked with Kickstarter for their political art series Election Issues on the excellently choppy single “In The Mean Times.” Now the lifelong punk-rocker is returning to the crowdfunding platform for the release of a new solo album. While Leo hasn’t released an LP under his own name or with his band the Pharmacists in seven years, he’s still kept remarkably busy in the meantime with a number of other projects, such as his collaboration with Aimee Mann, the Both. But now Leo’s back to the forefront, and in anticipation of the forthcoming album he’s released a five-minute teaser that features snippets of eight of the album’s new songs, beginning with four progressive iterations from demo to final product of the intro to the song “Anthems Of None.” Listen below.
Leo’s as-yet untitled solo album is estimated to be out in September. You can back the project here.
