It seems like Apples in Stereo’s John Dufilho is joining the ranks of Don Henley, ?uestlove and Dave Grohl in terms of drummers-turned-songwriters. For his newest project, John Singer Sergeant (which was an homage to the 19th Century American painter), Dufilho wrote a number of songs and enlisted his singer friends to contribute vocals to the tracks. John Singer Sergeant: The Music and Words of John Dufilho will be released April 10.
The 14-song LP will feature guest appearances from Ben Kweller, Old 97’s Rhett Miller, Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla, Centro-matic’s Will Johnson, Kool and the Gang’s Sir Earl Toon and many others. Check out the full track list and teaser video for the album below.
