Of Montreal Offers Free Single

Above behold the cover art for the new Of Montreal album, titled False Priest, to be released on 14 September via Polyvinyl Records. The band is offering a free download of the first single off the effort, "Coquet Coquette." Followers of the band will be familiar with the song from in-studio and live performances of it in 2009, but the tune has now morphed into a Beatlesque cum motion picture soundtrack.

When asked to describe the approach to the album, always entertaining Of Montreal front man Kevin Barnes told, "If Philip K. Dick was a black soul singer in the '70s, what kind of songs would he write? Or, If William S. Burroughs was a black songwriter from the '70s what kind of song would he write?" Um . . . right.

False Priest was produced by Jon Brion (Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, Rufus Wainwright, Kanye West). Here's the track listing (note the special guests!):

1 I Feel Ya' Strutter
2 Our Riotous Defects [ft. Janelle Monáe]
3 Coquet Coquette
4 Godly Intersex
5 Enemy Gene [ft. Janelle Monáe]
6 Hydra Fancies
7 Like a Tourist
8 Sex Karma [ft. Solange Knowles]
9 Girl Named Hello
10 Famine Affair
11 Casualty of You
12 Around the Way
