Brendan Benson is thinking beyond The Raconteurs, and wants to release another solo album (like his buddy Jack White announced last week). The problem isn't getting the music out his head and into a song, it's getting the songs out to the people in the form a Brendan Benson solo album. "It's the usual story with me - every album that I've recorded, I've had to find a new label... I just keep getting dropped!" he said when speaking with NME.
So in the information age of self empowerment, he started Readymade Records, who will handle the release as well as releases of other artists. Maybe he's been checking out what Jack White's done with Third Man Records and wants to get him some of that label action? Either way, What Kind of World will be released on Readymade Records on April 23/24. The single "Bad for Me" is out now.
