AC Newman Get Guilty

Up next on Broken Horse will be the terrific 2nd solo album by AC (aka Carl) Newman in early 2009. The album will be released on Matador in the US on January 20th and shortly after on Broken Horse in the UK/Europe. It really is a very special album and is more than an equal to his excellent debut album Slow Wonder and his work with the world conquering The New Pornographers.

Carl played his first show with his new band last Saturday at The Bell House in Brooklyn. He was accompanied by rising star Nicole Atkins who sings back up vocals on several tracks on Get Guilty.

Looks like it was a great night.
