jason lytle covers talk talk, issues new solo single 'dept. of disappearance'


Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle has gotten the band back together for some fall reunion shows, but he’s still focused on his solo work. As we’ve mentioned before, there’s a Talk Talk tribute album due out in September curated by Alan Wilder and accompanied by a glossy coffee table book.

Lytle, along with Wilder, Zero 7, White Lies, Turin Brakes and others, have covered classics from the Talk Talk catalog. He chose “Tomorrow Started” from the 1984 breakout album It’s My Life, infusing it with his trademark blips and fragile vocals:

He’s got a full length solo album, his third, on the way as well. Dept. of Disappearance is due out this fall, and if the title track is any indication, it’s The Sophtware Slump style pop laments:
