A.C. Newman rises above all other musicians by releasing new album and touring this fall

A.C. Newman, of The New Pornographers and heir to the Randy Newman dynasty, has completed his third solo full-length. This news gets even more exciting as Newman plans on releasing his new album on Matador in the US and Last Gang in Canada. Unfortunately, the title and release date haven’t been announced.

According to the pastry/indie music blog Pitchforkmedia.com, A.C. Newman is also going to tour. We get it! You’re pulling out all the stops, but geez, a tour? Seems a little excessive to me, but I’ll take it. Ticket presales start today. This news is exhausting, so after I post this slew of tourdates, I’m going to go take a nice nap on my natty nanny, Naddy’s, lap.
