Philadelphia local and Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green recently announced that he is recording a children’s album. PropertyOfZack quotes Anthony as saying, “Recording demos for this children’s album that I’m trying to put out around Christmas. What makes a song a ‘kids’ song? Just because it’s for kids doesn’t mean it has to be dumb right?” It sounds like the recent birth of Anthony’s two sons may be the inspiration for some awesome sing-along indie rock hits about potty training.
In addition to these recent developments, Anthony is releasing his third solo album Young Legs November 12th. With his voice, songwriting skills, and the help of Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, this is an album to look forward to. While Anthony’s other solo stuff is acoustic and influenced by folk, the first single of the new album, “Breaker” is led by piano and sounds spacier, more like Circa Survive.
You can listen to “Breaker” below, and pre-order the album here. Anthony will also be embarking on a month long US tour ending in Philadelphia on December 14th at Union Transfer. Find tickets to that show here.
