Though Matt Sharp resurrected The Rentals back in 2006, it’s been 15 years since he’s released a full-length studio effort under the moniker. In 2014, he’ll finally return with the band’s third LP via Polyvinyl Records.

The as-yet-untitled, self-produced effort is an all-star affair. Recorded in Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York City, Sharp was joined by The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney on drums, guitarist Ryen Slegr (Ozma), pianist Lauren Chipman (The Section Quartet), and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig (of Lucius).

Additional album will be announced in the near future. Until then, check out the video for the band’s hit single, 1996’s “Friends of P”.
