It's All Inside Your Head You Know It

Sean Lennon Friendly FireSean Lennon is getting all artsy on your arse. Billboard reports his first solo album in eight years, which is released September 26, will be a multimedia release complete with "short films," which in the 80s and 90s were known as music videos. You can see a trailer for Friendly Fire here.

I couldn't care less about little pretentious movies with Lindsay Lohan and Asia Argento (remember her? She was the cover girl for the most unearned and ridiculous Rolling Stone cover ever). But the music sounds pretty good -- very good actually. It sounds like it surpasses the fey qualities of his debut and reaches more of a psychedelic vibe. That could be good.

It's fascinating that he worked closely with Harper Simon (Paul's son) on the album. Makes me think about what kind of Beatles' spawn supergroup could be put together with Zak Starkey, Dhani Harrison, and James McCartney, all accomplished musicians in their own right. And don't forget Julian. Poor Julian. Everybody forgets Julian. Although I've seen Julian and he's quite good.
