John Early Announces Now More Than Ever Album and Tour


Actor and comedian John Early has announced a new album. Now More Than Ever, an expansion of his recent HBO comedy special of the same name, arrives September 13 via For My Denim Records/Thirty Tigers. The album, which features Early’s backing band the Lemon Squares, includes comedy as well as covers of songs by artists such as Neil Young, Britney Spears, Madonna, Aaliyah, and more. Early and the Lemon Squares will also embark on a North American tour in support of the album this fall. Check out the tracklist, album art, and dates below.

“I’ve been performing comedy and music with my long suffering band the Lemon Squares for over 10 years now, and I always assumed that there was no way to capture the magic of our live shows,” Early shared in a press statement. “But listening to this album takes me right back to that sweaty night in downtown Brooklyn, which felt something like being a crazed preacher at a tent revival.”
