Former Soul Coughing frontman M. Doughty has a brand new bag, and he's taken it online.
Doughty made his solo acoustic album, Skittish, available via his Web site, superspecialquestions.com.
The album, released online October 27, finds Doughty bringing a stripped-down sound to the new tracks, such as the raw and reflective "Peace in Los Angeles" and "All the Dirt," as well as a cover that marries Mary J. Blige's "Real Love" with the Feelies' "It's Only Life."
The frontman rolled out some new material on a solo acoustic tour that wrapped up in late October (see "Ex-Soul Coughing Frontman Lines Up Solo Shows").
While Doughty is selling the album himself online, he said he also is shopping for a new record label.
Soul Coughing called it quits in March after releasing three albums 1994's Ruby Vroom, 1996's Irresistible Bliss and 1998's El Oso.
Doughty was heard earlier this year on "Never Gonna Come Back Down," a club hit that he co-wrote and recorded with BT.
