Bob Evans, aka Jebediah frontman Kevin Mitchell, has released the double A-side Matterfact/Happy Tears, the first track from what will be his fifth studio album.
The new LP will be called Car Boot Sale — referring to the travelling salesman style of Evans’ old-school solo tours — and is being touted for a June 17th release. A pre-order of the record will provide punters with an instant download of Matterfact/Happy Tears to boot, and the track can be streamed in full, below.
Car Boot Sale, the follow up to the ARIA-nominated album Familiar Stranger, will feature a host of collaborations with the likes of Canadian singer Rex Sexsmith, drummer Laurence Pike and bassist Donny Benet.
And if that wasn’t enough good news for one day, Evans is also preparing to launch a brand new ‘Bobcast’. That is, a fortnightly podcast set to feature a bunch of special guests including Tom Ballard, Tony Buchen and heaps more. It’ll be called Good Evans, It’s a Bobcast! and will feature stories that shaped Evans and his career. The first episode is available here.
