Guess what, hyperreal internet superfriends??

Greta “your nickname will be Frankie Cosmos!” Kline just announced the release of a NEW THING.

It’s called Haunted Items, and it’s thing-ness consists of “a digital-only collection of new stripped-down songs for the piano.” Observe:

Items themselves are harmless unless they are infused with some kind of energy. These items are haunted by fear, consumerism, commitment, love, loss, the list goes on…I had some of these songs stuck inside me, mostly because I wrote a lot of them for piano and didn’t know how to record them, even as demos. My friend Elia gifted me with 10 hours of recording time with Mark Yoshizumi, and this winter felt like the perfect opportunity to get these out of my system and haunt you with them instead. I have always been afraid of items being haunted, but when you think about it, every item is, right?

But okay great; what’s so “new” about this project, then? Well, mostly this: STARTING TODAY, and throughout the subsequent 3 weeks, Sub Pop will share two to three songs from this nine-track collection each Wednesday, which you can listen to “all digital service providers.”

That doesn’t sound annoying at all!

See below for the artwork and a complete list of songs, and then, I guess, go stream them wherever you happen to stream music.

Oh yeah; and there’s also some Frankie Cosmos tour dates coming up. I’ll just go ahead and list those for you down below instead of making you jump through some obscene hoop first, k?
