By Alex HudsonSecretive former Felt leader Lawrence has been giving his fans some glimpses into his inner world recently, as he and his projects were the subject of a recent photo book and documentary. Now, he's getting ready to do what he does best: release some new music.
Lawrence's current band, Go-Kart Mozart, are gearing up to drop the strangely titled Go-Kart Mozart Are on the Hot Dog Streets (which comes with the subtitle Originals Don't Have to Fake It But Sometimes You Just Feel So Plastic). It will arrive on June 4 in the UK via West Midlands Records.
Lawrence has been talking about this album for a couple of years, but now it looks as if it's finally finished. The album will be available on CD and double vinyl, and an Amazon listing reveals that it will have 17 songs. See the tracklist below and the cover above.
In other news, the single "New World in the Morning," plus the B-side "Gizmos Gadgets Unrock Electric Guitar Clock Tick Tock," are available now from iTunes, although neither song appears to be on the album.
