The Hanged Man Due Out September 8

Jul 06, 2017 Bookmark and Share


Ted Leo has announced a new album, The Hanged Man, and shared its first single, "You're Like Me." Leo hasn't released a solo full-length album or one with The Pharmacists in seven years, since 2010's The Brutalist Bricks, but earlier this year he announced a Kickstarter campaign for a new one and shared a five-minute sampler of songs. Now the album is due out this fall, The Hanged Man will be self-released on September 8. Below is "You're Like Me," a punky blast of a song, followed by the album's tracklist. He's also announced some tour dates, which are below too.

The Hanged Man is Leo's 13th album, but the first credited solely to his name (rather than Ted Leo and the Pharmacists). Leo describes in a press release the recording of the album as a time of "personal desolation that felt fallow but was actually very fertile." Acclaimed graphic novelist Emil Ferris (My Favorite Thing Is Monsters) did the cover art. Despite not releasing a solo album in seven years, Leo did team up with Aimee Mann for 2014's collaborative album The Both.
