Free MP3s: Robyn Hitchcock teases ‘File Under Pop’ LP, releases KT Tunstall team-up

The inimitable Robyn Hitchcock this week announced he is recording a new album — provisionally titled File Under Pop — that’s being eyed for a January release, but, in the meantime, he’s giving away two “interim tracks” as free downloads, including one recorded with singer-songwriter KT Tunstall singing harmonies.

Hitchcock made the announcement via the video clip posted above, revealing he’s at work with bassist and producer Paul Noble on the project. The two new songs — “There Goes the Ice,” with Tunstall, and “Twitch 4 Sam Surfer” — are being made available as free downloads as part of Hitchcock’s “Phantom 45s” series, as well as through Yep Roc Records’ 15th anniversary celebrations, which Hitchcock is taking part in.

Yep Roc announced Wednesday that Hitchcock will join Nick Lowe, John Doe and more at the label’s 15th anniversary concert at the Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, N.C., on Oct. 11-13.

Below, you can watch a music video for “There Goes the Ice” and stream and/or download both tracks through the Soundcloud player or via Hitchcock’s own website, where you also have the option to purchase higher-quality FLAC files for 99 cents apiece.
