Tim Heidecker, obviously of Tim and Eric fame, has a new album coming out it’s been announced.
In addition to his work as a comedian, Heidecker is also known as a musician. And on September 25th, his new album Fear of Death is going to be released on Spacebomb Records. The album is described as a “serious album about serious topics”. Some of these topics include “a doomed future, abandoning life in the city, and the inevitability of death“. Heidecker is joined by an all-star band that includes Weyes Blood’s Natalie Mering, Drew Erickson, The Lemon Twigs’ Brian and Michael D’Addario, Jonathan Rado, and string arrangements by Trey Pollard.
“I didn’t know that this record was going to be so focused on death when I was writing it,” Heidecker says. “It took a minute for me to stand back and look at what I was talking about to realize that, yes, I am now a middle-aged man and my subconscious is screaming at me: ‘You are getting old, dude! You are not going to live forever! Put down that cheeseburger!’”
“This record is a dream come true for me,” added Heidecker. “I got to work with some of the best, and nicest, musicians in town who helped me take some shabby, simple tunes and turn them into something I’m really proud of.”
