Loney, Dear [heart] Andrew Bird

Good news for all you citizens of the US. Loney, Dear is coming to a city near you. I have written about Emil before, urging you to take a listen. Now its time for Emil to release a long awaited new album: Dear John. On his official website he describes the new album as something darker than before or more precise "A dark record with a lava-ish glow from underneath".

Most os the US tour is a collaboration with his friend Andrew Bird, that you might have come across before. He also features in some of the song on the new album. The album is released January 27th in the US and March 15th here in Sweden. Go to Loney, Dear's Myspace and listen to the new song Airport Surroundings.
