Aaron and the rest of FREEMAN, the band
FREEMAN

Aaron Freeman no longer goes by Gene Ween but he has not stopped making music. Following 2012's Marvelous Clouds , which used lyrics by Rod McKuen, he's now set to release his first album of original material which will be out July 22. Now sober and now going by FREEMAN, he says of the album, "I want this record to pay homage to Ween. These are the same songs I would've written in Ween --- except without Mickey."

The first song from the album, "(For A While) I Couldn't Play My Guitar Like A Man," was just released, for real, via Jack Black's Facebook. You can stream it below.

FREEMAN, which is also the name of his new five-piece band, will be playing shows this summer, including two in NYC: July 22 at Mercury Lounge and July 23 at Baby's All Right. Tickets for Baby's All Right are already on sale, and tickets for Mercury Lounge go on sale Friday (4/25) at noon with an AmEx presale beginning Wednesday (4/23) at noon.

All dates are listed, along with the new track stream, below...

He acts like Dean force-fed him heroin for twenty years.

It suffers greatly without Mickey. The guitar work is really sloppy and frequently incorrect.
