REM’s Peter Buck and singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur have announced their debut album as Arthur Buck. Not sure where they got that name from.

The project seemingly came together pretty quickly, with the duo writing eight songs together over the course of three days late last year, before performing them live the next night.

“My first thought was, ‘Hey, I’ll get Peter to play acoustic guitar on some of the stuff I’m working on”, says Arthur. “So I started showing him songs. But he was like, ‘That’s cool. Now check this out’. And he started playing chords and whatnot. So I put my guitar down and began singing over his changes, and it was magical. It was easy. And these great songs just started popping out”.

Buck adds: “It was all new songs, and it was spontaneous. And the great thing about working that way was that it didn’t have to be anything in particular. It was liberated from any expectation. It was free”.

The album is set for release on 15 Jun and its opening track, ‘I Am The Moment’, is out now.┬áCheck it out here:
