After over 30 years of music-making with the Afghan Whigs and the Twilight Singers, frontman Greg Dulli will now step out solo with a new album under his given name.

Dulli will release Random Desire on February 21 through Royal Cream/BMG. Ten tracks in length, Dulli began writing music and lyrics in the aftermath of the Afghan Whigs releasing 2017's In Spades.

Following that record, Whigs drummer Patrick Keeler went to record and tour with the Raconteurs, bassist John Curley went back to school, and guitarist Dave Rosser passed away following a battle with colon cancer.

Random Desire finds Dulli collaborating with Whigs bandmates Jon Skibic and Rick G. Nelson, Mathias Schneeberger (Twilight Singers), Dr. Stephen Patt and drummer Jon Theodore (Queens of the Stone Age, the Mars Volta).

A first track arrives today with opener "Pantomima," which you can hear below. Dulli has also mapped out a tour of Europe behind the album, with a press release noting that U.S. tour dates will be announced "soon." 

Random Desire is now available for pre-order.

1. Pantomima
2. Sempre
3. Marry Me
4. The Tide
5. Scorpio
6. It Falls Apart
