Everclear Frontman Art Alexakis to Release First-Ever Solo Album

Art Alexakis — best-known as frontman and songwriter of the alt-rock outfit Everclear — is releasing his first solo album, expected later this year via The End Records/BMG.

On Feb. 28 he launched a PledgeMusic campaign giving fans exclusive access to join him throughout the entire recording process and album release, along with different types of products, bundles, and experiences. He’ll be releasing all types of weekly updates, including behind the scenes footage from the studio, to give fans an inside look at everything that goes into making the record.

“For the most part, it’s going to be an acoustic singer-songwriter type of album,” says Alexakis. “There’s going to be banjo, and some keyboards, and some programming on it. Right now it has the feel of a very rough-sounding, almost Americana-type of feel, while underneath it I’m programming and really screwing with sounds. I’m letting it evolve as it goes, and that’s what’s so much fun about it. It’s not about making another Everclear record; it’s about doing something that’s just me. I’m pushing my ability and pushing the envelope, and having fun at the same time. I’ve always wanted to do something like this.”
