Today, Tobin Sprout (formerly of Guided By Voices) premiered his second single “A Walk Across The Human Bridge” from his upcoming album ‘The Universe & Me’, out January 27 through Burger Records. Prior to this single Sprout released the song “Future Boy Today / Man Of Tomorrow”. The album is available for preorder now.
The Universe and Me is Sprout’s sixth solo album; created during a seven-year gestation period that included unearthing lost recordings (the single, “Future Boy Today/Man of Tomorrow” for one, was being saved for GBV), and digging through a treasure chest of memories in his home studio in Michigan.
The Universe and Me will be available on Burger Records on January 27, with a limited pressing of a baby blue vinyl for the first 300 copies. Following the release, Sprout and his new band will embark on a nationwide tour. This will be his first tour in over a decade, supported by Burger Records, who’ll be reissuing Sprout’s mid-’90s Matador albums — Carnival Boy and Moonflower Plastic — in the months ahead.
