Daniel Johnston: Produced?

Are you ready for a Daniel Johnston album produced and backed by musicians? Well, it happened and an October release is planned.

Need proof? Johnston, who recently played Metro, released a new song off the album, “Is And Always Was.”

The album, the first new one for Johnston in six years, “is a decided step away from the lo-fi homemade recordings for which Johnston is famous,” a press release says.

    Album came out today – sounds great! It’s not hi-fi by any means…how could it be with Daniel’s tone, lisp, etc. But it is more produced than his recent works…and the homemade cassette stuff.
