Published Feb 18, 2016Comically subversive pop twister Har Mar Superstar (a.k.a. Sean Tillman) has announced he's set to return with a new, Julian Casablancas-produced LP. An official due date has yet to arrive, but the singer-songwriter's Best Summer Ever will be issued through Casablancas' Cult Records later this year.
A press release notes that the record, Har Mar Superstar's first since the golden soul-styled Bye Bye 17 album from 2013, was put together by Tillman, with assistance from Chris Bierden, Ryan McMahon, Matt Sweeney and Ryan Olson.
