Phish frontman Trey Anastasio has announced a new album from his solo project, the Trey Anastasio Band. A release date for Paper Wheels is set for early 2015, but today, Anastasio has offered a preview in the form of “Bounce”. It’s available for free download in the widget below.

Additionally, Anastasio has set dates for a US solo tour during which he’ll offer further previews of the upcoming LP. The jaunt kicks off November 28th in Chicago and runs through mid-December.

According to a press release, Paper Wheels was recorded in less than a week at The Barn, Anastasio’s reconstructed barn-turned-rehearsal/recording studio located outside Burlington, Vermont. “Inspired by the immediacy of Stax-era recordings, Anastasio and his band mates recorded the songs live, playing and singing together in one room and often requiring no more than one or two takes,” the press release adds.

In related news, Anastasio will tour with Phish later this month.
