Jad Fair’s first Artist in Residence LP announced today [Artist Spotlight]

Spring has sprung and along with that comes the announcement of Jad Fair’s first LP as our Artist in Residence, here at Joyful Noise. The first and newest LP, Let’s Born to Rock, is a collaboration with Strobe Talbot and features the upbeat and classicly lo-fi song “Back on Track”, anounced today! If you haven’t been keeping up, Jad Fair has teamed up with Joyful Noise this year to create 4 LPs to be released exclusively on the label, featuring collaborations with Strobe Talbot, Norman Blake, Danielson, and R Stevie Moore.

Let’s Born to Rock is only available through the “Artist in Residence” box set from Joyful Noise. Only 450 copies will be made of each LP, all of which feature original paper cutting artwork from Jad Fair. Let’s Born to Rock is featured on a Cyan Blue Vinyl and the box to store the LPs highlights artwork from Jad Fair and is hand numbered and signed by the man himself.

In other words, this is too cool to pass up! Each LP will be released quarterly for the next year, and if the song “Back on Track” is any indication of what we can expect to come from Jad Fair and his dynamic collaborations, there is A LOT to look forward to.
