Sean Lennon and Primus’s Les Claypool announce Claypool Lennon Delirium album

Stream new track 'Mr Wright' ahead of the June release.
Sean Lennon and Primus vocalist/bassist Les Claypool have formed a new project, and are set to release a debut album.

Going under the name the Claypool Lennon Delirium, the duo will release full-length ‘Monolith of Phobus’ on June 3rd before heading off on tour.

A first track, ‘Mr Wright’, is streaming now.

“Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart,” Claypool said in a press release. “He definitely reflects his genetics – not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother. It makes for a glorious freak stew.

“Usually I play the drums and percussion on my records but Sean has such a different feel than I do, it just made more sense for him to man the kit on most of the tunes on this project. I took the helm at my old vintage API console and let him bang away. He was happy as a piggy rolling in shit every time he grabbed the sticks…his drumming is like a cross between Ringo and Nick Mason. But I think folks will be most surprised by what a monster guitar player he is, especially when you prod him a bit.”

Lennon added, “It’s been an honor and a challenge playing with someone of Les’ caliber, but luckily the Gods of Pinot Noir shone favorably down and granted us a bundle of devilish tunes about monkeys, outer space and sexual deviancy.”
