Robert Pollard Is Off To Business - New Solo Album, New Record Label And MP3 Available For Download!

Hold onto your hats, my rock 'n' roll children! Those snarky hipsters over at Pitchfork have spilled the beans on Robert Pollards new solo album, titled "Robert Pollard Is Off To Business"! As a regular reader of Pop Zeus, you already knew that this Pollard/Todd Tobias colaboration was on its way (and had a clue to its title). But what was not known is that Pollard would be parting ways with previous label Merge Records. The June 3rd CD/LP release of Off To Business will debut on Pollard's new record label Guided By Voices, Inc.- run by manager-extraordinaire DJ Rich Turiel, manager David Newgarden and business manager Eric Weiss. Clocking in at a mere 35 minutes, the 10 song tracklist is as follows...

01 The Original Heart
02 The Blondes
03 1 Years Old
04 Gratification to Concrete
05 No One but I
06 Weatherman and Skin Goddess
07 Confessions of a Teenage Jerk-Off
08 To the Path!
09 Western Centipede
10 Wealth and Hell-Being

And you, yes you can download Gratification To Concrete (courtesy of Pitchfork) right this very minute! I loved this song after just one listen and I'm positive you will too.

But before Robert Pollard Is Off To Business, April 8th will bring the CD/12" single Weatherman and Skin Goddess! Only available through Pollard's official site, this single will also include 2 non-album tracks Kiss the Quiet Man and Coat Factory Zero. So mark your calendars, kids. And I will be updating my handy-dandy Pollard release calendar in the meantime...
