Mikal Cronin just released his first new record in four years, a 7" single with two new songs both of which are really good -- you can stream that below. He's also just launched a fan club, where if you sign up you can get a download of him covering The Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait."

More music from Mikal must be on the way, as he's just announced a fall tour that has him out with Shannon Lay. Things kick off November 8 in Portland and then head east, before circling back to the West Coast and wrapping up in San Diego on December 1. They'll stop in NYC to play Bowery Ballroom on November 20. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon.

He's also got a few dates this spring and summer, including Chicago's Do Division street festival and a Burger Boogaloo pre-party in Oakland, CA. All tour dates are listed below.

UPDATE (5/15): Shannon Lay also now announced that she signed to Sub Pop, and she celebrated the signing with a cover of Karen Dalton's "Something On Your Mind." "The version that Karen Dalton does is a gorgeous piece of wisdom. I wanted to cover it because I believe in the message with all my heart. Life is going to knock you down and lift you up and you’ll never experience any of it unless you try. I love the idea of spreading that spirit further. If there’s something on your mind, let it out. Try even if there’s a possibility you’ll fail, you might learn something amazing about yourself," Shannon says. Listen below and stay tuned for "more information on impending music" from Shannon.
