Hitchcock Reveals New LP Details

While celebrating the official premiere of his new concert film, "Storefront Hitchcock," on Wednesday night in New York City, surrealist singer/songwriter Robyn Hitchcock discussed details of his upcoming album, Jewels For Sophia, which is slated for release next year. R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and Grant Lee Buffalo frontman Lee Philips are among the guests appearing on the LP. "It's going to be more upbeat than my last album," Hitchcock commented. "It'll be good old late-20th century rock 'n' roll."
