You may remember that Half Japanese's Jad Fair made four collaborative albums as part of his Artist in Residence series for Joyful Noise. The album he made with Teenage Fanclub's Norman Blake, titled Yes, will be out May 12. (This is their second collaboration, actually, as Words of Wisdom and Hope came out back in 2002.) The LP offers up a more polished guitar pop setting than Jad Fair is usually involved in, though it's standard fare for Blake. It's a nice combination and you can check out "Two Hearts Together," which makes its premiere in this post, below.

Jad and Norman will be touring the UK and Europe over the next couple of weeks. Make some time for North America soon, ok guys? All dates are listed below...
