Well, I think we have all waited long enough. I am delighted to FINALLY announce that my new album Solid State will be released on April 28. You can pre-order now at solidstate.jonathancoulton.com. The first single is called “All This Time” and is available right now on Spotify, and as a download in iTunes.
Don’t panic, but Solid State is a concept album about the internet, trolls, artificial intelligence, and how love and empathy will save humanity. So, no pressure. There is also a companion graphic novel (136 pages, hardcover) written by Matt Fraction and drawn by Albert Monteys. You can pre-order these things, plus shirts, gorgeous double vinyl, and various bundles of other fancy items TODAY NOW. We’ll ship them to you the week of release.
Also also, I’ll be on tour, opening for Aimee Mann, April 20 – May 13 in various cities across the country.
This was a long time in the making, and I really can’t wait for you to hear it.

Guys, this show is GREAT. David Rees is a good friend, and I think he’s pretty brilliant, and this show is like if Mr. Rogers was very funny and did a science show. My wife was one of the show’s creators, so YES, I am a little biased maybe, but I would be saying all of this anyway because I truly love it.
The new season premiers this Wednesday November 11 on the Esquire Network, and if you know what’s good for you, and if you have ever trusted me about ANYTHING, you should watch it.
The trailer and some clips from the show are here.
Oh I know, a show on TELEVISION? What even IS the Esquire Network? Probably it is a number on your cable box. You can do this! I believe in you!
