Hear ‘My Zodiac Companion,’ the First New Guided By Voices Song Since the Last One

Astonishingly prolific songwriter Robert Pollard has announced a new Guided By Voices album, Please Be Honest, out April 22. In an uncommon show of restraint, the GBV frontman waited almost an entire week since the release of his most recent solo album, Of Course You Are, to share the news.

Pollard played every instrument on the upcoming album, which would seem to make it a solo record as well, but according to a press release, “it felt to him like a Guided By Voices record.” The rest of Pollard’s on-again, off-again band will join him on tour this spring. Hear the rough-hewn glam rock song “My Zodiac Companion” and see the whole track list below.
