Greg Dulli has lent his name to many projects — mainly as frontman for The Afghan Whigs, but also as a member of The Twilight Singers and The Gutter Twins — but for the first time in his 30+ year career, he's releasing a proper solo album under his own name. Random Desire will be out February 21st via Royal Cream/BMG; check out the first single “Pantomima” below. 

Dulli found inspiration "via the model of one-man-band visionaries Prince and Todd Rundgren", he explains in a press release, taking on the majority of the instrumentation himself, with a little support from "Whigs’ guitarist Jon Skibic and multi-instrumentalist Rick G. Nelson, Mathias Schneeberger (Twilight Singers), pedal steel wizard, upright bassist, and physician Dr. Stephen Patt, and drummer Jon Theodore (Queens of the Stone Age, The Mars Volta)." 

He'll also head out on a European tour in 2020; see tour dates and the album's tracklisting below.
