As previously reported, ex-R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck will release his debut solo album this year. While he’s yet to officially announce a title or a release date, details have emerged that shed light on the project. As Slicing Up Eyeballs reports, Buck’s longtime friend and collaborator Scott McCaughey reached out to the Seattle Weekly and indicated that Buck’s album will be eponymously titled and could surface as early as next month.

What’s more, McCaughey also reported that Buck will sing on the record, receive some support from guitarist Lenny Kaye (of the Patti Smith Group), and be joined by a roster of guest vocalists, including former R.E.M. bandmate Mike Mills, Corin Tucker, and McCaughey himself. Portland’s own Mississippi Records will issue the album, which will only be available on vinyl — at least initially.

Buck also has a new band called Richard M. Nixon, featuring McCaughey and ex-R.E.M. drummer Bill Rieflin. The three will soon perform two shows at Seattle’s The Sunset on September 21 and 22nd alongside Young Fresh Fellows.

While we wait for Buck’s official word, stream his recent track, “10 Million BC”.
