Merge Records will release Lambchop’s 11th album, Mr. M, on February 21, 2012. Mr. M, a collection of chilled out songs on love and loss and the detritus of everyday existence. Recorded at Mark Nevers’s Nashville Beech House studio / bungalow and dedicated to Vic Chesnutt, Mr. M includes the usual musicians – Scott Martin (drums), Matt Swanson (bass), Ryan Norris (guitar, organ), Tony Crow (piano), William Tyler (guitar) and various guests. Thickly layered black and white portraits forming a series of paintings called Beautillion Millitaire 2000 will be featured on the album sleeve and throughout the full artwork. The core of the music remains a combination of Wagner’s guitar and his soft, warm voice.
Listen to the first track from Mr. M, If Not I’ll Just Die, below.
