Ben Cook, who until very recently was in Fucked Up, is back with his powerpop alter ego Young Guv, and has a double album, GUV III & IV, planned for next year. It's being released in two parts, with GUV III dropping March 11 via Run For Cover Records (US) and Hand Drawn Dracula (Canada). He's just shared the first single, "Lo Lo Lonely," a crunchy, harmony-laden earworm in the Big Star/Teenage Fanclub tradition. You can watch the video for it below.

Young Guv is on tour with Narrow Head starting Thursday (11/4) in Birmingham, AL, and they'll hit Brooklyn for a show at Market Hotel on November 12. The tour wraps in in Austin on 11/23 and all dates are listed below.

GUV III tracklist:
1. Couldn't Leave You If I Tried
2. It's Only Dancing
3. Lo Lo Lonely
4. Only Wanna See U Tonite
5. Good Time
6. Take Up All My Time
7. But I Ain't Got U
8. Same Old Fool
9. She Don't Cry For Anyone
