Tommy Keene Returns w/Solo LP



Eighth solo album and first one in three years.


By Blurt Staff


Tommy Keene is set to release his first solo album in nearly three years, In The Late Bright, on Feb. 17 via Second Motion Records. The 11-track album, co-produced by Keene and R. Walt Vincent (Pete Yorn, James Blunt), was recorded in Keene’s Los Angeles home earlier this year and features what’s being described as “a wide range of songs from the rollicking opener, “Late Bright,” to his first recorded instrumental (“Elevated”) and the wistful “Save This Harmony.””



In recent years powerpop godfather Keene has worked with both Paul Westerberg and Robert Pollard as their right-hand man on guitar. Additionally, his most recent release, Blues and Boogie Shoes, was a collaboration with Pollard they dubbed the Keene Brothers.


In The Late Bright marks Keene’s eight full-length album and his first for newly-founded Second Motion Records out of Chapel Hill.
