Dean Wareham unveils first solo EP details

Dean Wareham's solo single, "Love Is Colder Than Death" is out now via Double Feature Records (in the US) and Sonic Cathedral (in the UK).
The song premiered today via Pitchfork and is now available at digital retailers. A limited-edition clear vinyl 7" is also available from Sonic Cathedral.

"Love Is Colder Than Death" is the first track to be taken from the former Galaxie 500/Luna frontman's first solo release - a six-track EP titled Emancipated Hearts, which will be released Oct. 15 in the US and November 4 in the UK.

According to Dean, "Love Is Colder Than Death" is "about epic journeys and happy returns." It takes its title from German film director Rainer Werner Fassbinder's first feature-length film,which was released in1969. "It's not a great film, but is a memorable title," explains Dean. "I also took inspiration from children's nonsense poetry -- for the line 'Cats and mices have their vices'."

"Love Is Colder Than Death" comes backed with a cover of 'She Went Walking In The Rain,' a song written by Cheval Sombre and Sonic Boom which originally appeared on the former's 2012 album Mad Love.
Both tracks were produced by Jason Quever, who is well known for his own band Papercuts and also for his production work for the likes of Beach House and Cass McCombs.
