Gene Ween Goes Solo

Aaron Freeman will step out from behind the Gene Ween moniker to release Marvelous Clouds , a 13-song tribute to the poet and songwriter Rod McKuen, under his own name later this spring. A prolific writer, McKuen wrote songs for the likes of Perry Como and Frank Sinatra while compiling volumes of poetry, some of which earned a good deal of success in the late ’60s. Hear a teaser of album cut “Jean” down below.

Marvelous Clouds is out 4/10 on Partisan Records.
