Dean Wareham has announced a new album. The singer-songwriter from Luna and Galaxie 500 will release I Have Nothing to Say to the Mayor of LA on October 15th via Double Feature Records. The first single is called “The Past Is Our Plaything” and has a video directed by Alexandra Cabral. Watch it below.

“‘The Past Is Our Plaything’ was recorded in a studio on Stinson Beach, north of San Francisco, in November 2020,” Wareham said in a statement. “The song was born from Julian Barnes’ observations in my favorite book last year – The Man in the Red Coat – about a collection of dandies, drug addicts, artists and writers in France and England during the Belle Epoque.”

Dean Wareham’s last solo album, the self-titled Dean Wareham, was released in 2014.
