Jon Spencer has announced details of his debut solo album.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion frontman will launch Spencer Sings The Hits on November 2 via Red Records. It was recorded last year at the Key Club Recording Company in collaboration with Bill Skibbe, Sam Coomes and M. Sord.

Spencer says: “Sam is someone with whom I have crossed paths many times over the years. I have always been a fan of his wild keyboard style and twisted tunesmith-ery. In fact we kicked around the idea of a collaboration way back in the early 00s.

“I got to know Sord from previous visits to and projects done at the Key Club. He was the handyman and assistant engineer that turned out to be a great drummer.”

Last month, Spencer released a video for the lead track Do The Trash Can, which can be seen below along with his upcoming UK tour dates with Melvins.
