As mentioned, sax machine Colin Stetson is set to release a new solo album this year, and since we last spoke, more details on that have been revealed. The album is called New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light and it will be out on April 30 via Constellation. It features guest vocals from Justin Vernon on four tracks (Colin’s been a Bon Iver member for a while now) and was mixed by Ben Frost, who also worked on New History Warfare Vol. 2. You can download the avant-garde album track, “High Above A Grey Green Sea,” above or stream it below. The album art and tracklist are also below.

Colin will be supporting the album with an extensive international tour which hits NYC on May 8 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Most of the surrounding shows are with past collaborator Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), but no support has been announced for the LPR show yet.

UPDATE: Neufeld plays LPR too, and Rafiq Bhatia as well.
