Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor releasing a solo record

JP’s blog made us aware that Grizzly Bear‘s Chris Taylor is recording a solo album set for release later this year. In an interview with Death + Taxes magazine he said he hoped to tour with the album but has other projects on the go too.

Last year Taylor go-produced the Forget LP by Twin Shadow which he distributed on his Terrible Records label before the act signed to 4AD. Twin Shadow’s George Lewis has returned the favour by working on Taylor’s CANT solo project, you can download the 2009 track ‘Ghosts’ here.

In other Grizzly Bear related news, Ed Droste and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold are releasing a duet in the coming weeks, this is the word according to Grizzly Bear Galore.
