It’s been three years since Interpol frontman Paul Banks introduced his solo alter ego, Julian Plenti, with Julian Plenti Is… Skyscraper in 2009. Now he’ll be releasing a new solo EP, but this time under his own name, titling the release Julian Plenti Lives….
The 5-track EP looks to be the precursor to a new album release, which is likely to be due out at the end of this year. It will be given a limited edition run of 1,500 CDs and 2,300 vinyl copies, but remains widely available digitally.
Banks will feature several covers on the EP, including a version of Frank Sinatra’s I’m a Fool To Want You, and J Dilla’s Mythsysizer.
