It’s Good to Have You Back, Jason Lytle, but Keep Your Hands Off My Baby

Fans of the much-missed Grandaddy can rejoice in frontman Jason Lytle's jaunt across the country. His anticipated solo debut, Yours Truly, the Commuter, is out May 19 courtesy of ANTI-. To celebrate his new record and new lease on life, Lytle will be opening for labelmate Neko Case. Beautiful... beautiful Neko Case.

Neko... ay caramba! My lovely fiery flower. It's been a while since I
seen you, girl. Damn. So fine. I know that last time we met, you said
you wanted me to "leave you alone" and that I was "creepy." I know you
didn't really mean that. Life on the road can really eat at you. And
you know, nobody treats you how Kenny Bloggins does. Let me make it up to you. Somethin' real nice like. I know you like tigers, so we could go for a walk through the zoo -- or paint pictures of each other in the park at dusk. Then we can head back to my place, you know. A vivacious, hardworking lady such as yourself deserves only the most potent sensual massage. I use only finest scented oils imported from India. Come see 'bout

Oh shit, where was I? I'm a little loopy off the swine flu meds. Oh yeah, tourdates:
