As previously reported, Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will release his guest-heavy eighth solo album, Traveler, on October 16th via Rubber Jungle Records/ATO Records. Despite cameos from The National’s Bryan Devendorf and Matt Berninger and Mates of State’s Kori Gardner, our first listen, “Let Me Lie”, is actually a reconfigured Phish track (it was originally released on 2006’s Bar 17 and then re-released on the limited-edition Party Time). Though having a few miles on it, this latest version is decidedly fresh, transformed from a simple folk tune into a multi-layered giant of strings, xylophone, and gorgeous harmonies, profoundly demonstrating that even already-good songs can always get better.
