Published Sep 16, 2009At the Cut, his second LP of collaborations with Silver Mt. Zion and Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, doesn't drop until later this month, but already singer-songwriter Vic Chesnutt has prepared another full-length album. And this time, his insanely iconic collaborator is Modern Lovers front-man Jonathan Richman.
The latest in Chesnutt's string of full-lengths is called Skitter On Take-Off and includes a whole bunch of production from Richman and long-time drummer Tommy Larkins. As previously reported, Richman and Chesnutt paired up for a joint North American tour earlier this year, making this new collaboration a smart move.
While little is known about the album at this point, we do know that it will be out on October 6 via Vapor Records. Also, a track from the record, called "Society Sue," can be heard here.
Along with the new album news, Chesnutt has announced a massive North American tour, which includes a healthy number of Canadian dates.
