Ted Leo Details New Album The Hanged Man, Releases First Single “You’re Like Me”

Ted Leo has been at it for a while now, and the buzzsaw-guitar-rocker and former Matador Records staple is gearing up to release his Kickstarter-funded album The Hanged Man. The album, out September 8, is his first solo release since 2010’s The Brutalist Bricks. He’s also released the first single, “You’re Like Me.”

The song, which Leo shared a demo of in October, is anchored by a rock-solid hook and straddles Leo’s standard line between pop-punk and Bruce-Springsteen-esque songwriting tendencies. To learn more about Ted Leo and his re-emergence, read Stereogum’s great, in-depth, and harrowing cover story about him, which just came out.
