Ted Leo and Aimee Mann’s new group, The Both, will release its self-titled debut album on April 15 through Mann’s own SuperEgo Records. In advance of the record, Rolling Stone is premiering the first single, “Milwaukee,” which Leo says was inspired by the city’s very famous “Bronze Fonz”—a somewhat-disconcerting piece of public art that also inspired The Both’s very formation.
All songs on The Both were recorded by Mann and Leo in Los Angeles with producer Paul Bryan, who also plays in Mann’s band. The group will tour in support of the LP. Dates for that run are listed below.
