Trey Anastasio & The National Members Collaborate

Trey Anastasio has collaborated with a slew of famous musicians from the world of jazz, rock, funk and blues over the years, but now the Phish guitarist/singer is going the indie-rock route for his next solo project: Spin reports that Trey has teamed up with members of beloved indie bands The National and Mates of State for a new solo album — said to be a studio-focused effort that won’t necessarily translate to a live setting as seamlessly as the bulk of his previous output.

What’s more, Tarquin Studios — an awesome Bridgeport, Connecticut facility where the likes of Interpol, Frightened Rabbit, and the aforementioned acts have recorded lauded recent favorites — has been the home to Anastasio’s sessions over the past month.

Few other details are known at this time, as this LP remains in-progress, but in the meantime perhaps Trey will debut some new cuts on his upcoming orchestral tour. Either way, we can’t wait to hear these two worlds collide in the new year.
