Rhett Miller Talks To Billboard About His Upcoming Solo Disc

Speaking of the 97's, news comes today via Billboard that Rhett Miller's fourth solo record will see release on June 9.

The self-titled affair, which Miller recorded over the past two months at Salim Nourallah's Pleasantry Lane studios, also features a whole bunch of familiar names backing the 97's' frontman: Nourallah, Deathray Davies' John Dufilho, producer Jon Brion and the man who produced Nourallah's upcoming disc, Billy Harvey from Austin.

The Billboard piece has plenty more info, too: how Miller transitions between Old 97's discs and solo efforts; how Dufilho went a long way toward defining this disc's sound; and how Miller believes this is his darkest and broadest solo effort yet.

But the most interesting bit? At least in my eyes? That Miller and fellow Old 97's member Murry Hammond are contemplating a sort of "An Evening With..." tour in which they'll both perform solo material. That I'd pay to see.
