New album's called Out of the Game. Mark Ronson producing. Out May 1st. He's also touring in support. But he always seems to be touring, so that's not really new news.

What's the word on the album? Have we heard any previews yet? I'm so glad he's got a producer again. He's far too self-indulgent to self-produce. I'm hoping he's left those everything-but-the-kitchen-sink orchestrations and overly flowery piano arrangements of the last few albums behind. It's time a return to the songcraft and (relative) restraint of Poses and his self-titled debut.
