Paper + Plastick To Release Andrew Dost's Upcoming Solo Album

Years in the making, Paper + Plastick Records has announced it will release Andrew Dost's sophomore solo album, "Wasted Miracle," later this year. Currently locked away in his home studio, the multi-instrumentalist is recording vocals and putting the final touches on the album, which will be his second album for Paper + Plastick. For updates on the album, visit Dost's recently launched website.

"This album is full of the little snippets of melody I couldn't get out of my head," says Dost. With many of songs originating from ideas he had for his current band, fun., and some even dating back to his former band Anathallo, Dost admits, "I liked them too much to abandon them."

More details regarding the album will be announced shortly.

Dost previously released his solo debut, "Columbus," via Paper + Plastick in December 2008, which is available on CD, vinyl and digitally. Loosely based on the exploits of Christopher Columbus, Dost wrote, recorded, produced and played almost all of the instruments on the album, which features guest appearances from Michael Nau (of Page France and The Cotton Jones Basket Ride), Nate Ruess (of The Format), Joel Thiele (of Anathallo), and Chris Fafalios and Steve Soboslai (of Punchline). Since leaving Anathallo, Dost's main project is the pop-rock outfit fun., which also released their debut Aim And Ignite (Nettwerk) on vinyl through Paper + Plastick and sold out quickly.
