Russell Simins, Dan The Automator Set New Release Date For Collab, Unveil New Track

Finally! After a string of delays that pushed Men Without Pants' Naturally back and well.. back, the mind-bending collaboration between multi-platinum producer extraordinaire Dan The Automator and Blues Explosion co-founder/drummer Russell Simins has a solid release date. Yep; mark your calendars for August 19th, the day the album finally hits stores -- both digital and physical.

Expanded to include more tracks than originally reported (hence the delays), Naturally features recently recorded gems My Balloon, I Like The Way It Feels, Already Bored & the acoustic Goodbye. Guest work from Nick Zinner (The Yeah Yeah Yeahs), chanteuse Gillian Rivers (vocals, violin, piano & pump organ), Sean Lennon, Cibo Mato and Sammy James, Jr. (The Mooney Suzuki) abounds, plus a few surprises we can’t yet mention here. The latest piece of free music-goes-commando is the rambunctious "Double Life," one of the most energetic cuts from all of Naturally.
