Chris Thile has announced a new solo record, titled Laysongs. The mandolin virtuoso’s upcoming record will drop on June 4. In addition to the announcement, Thile shared the first single, “Laysong,” along with an official video.
“Fellow Music Lovers, I made a solo record!” Thile wrote in a post on social media announcing the album. “It’s called Laysongs and it’s an ode to singing hymns in a roomful of people with your mind bouncing from God to the possible lack thereof to what to drink with dinner.”
