Pollard Signs to Merge

GBV’s Robert Pollard Signs With Merge Records
Published: 2005-10-14
Now that Guided By Voices have officially packed it in, former frontman Robert Pollard has signed a solo deal with Merge Records, the Chapel Hill indie run by half of Superchunk and current home to Montreal’s Arcade Fire. Appropriately, given Pollard’s notoriously prolific songwriting facilities, his first release for Merge will be a double album.

Entitled From A Compound Eye, the two-disc set will be released on January 26 next year, with Pollard telling Billboard that the opus contains “all four P's: pop, punk, prog and psychedelic.” The album, a 26-track affair, will be followed by a tour; details for that have yet to be revealed.
