Frank Black is to release a double-disc album this June, entitled Fastman/Raiderman, through Cooking Vinyl.
The product of two years' recording with Jon Tiven in Nashville and LA, the 27-track album is a worthy successor to 2005's well-received Honeycomb. The record features celebrated contributors, including Levon Helm (The Band), Tom Petersson (Cheap Trick) and Al Kooper.
Black had the following to say on his current co-workers:
“On Honeycomb I was walking on eggshells. These guys are still legends, but now that we’d hung around a bit, I was more at ease.”The album is released on June 19th.
