The release, which takes the form of 18, short, lo-fi folk songs, has been made available via Cera’s Bandcamp page and is available to purchase for £4.19 ($7) or higher, dependent on the buyer’s discretion.
The bio for the album simply reads: “Michael Cera was born in Canada in 1988 at the tender age of zero.”
Cera has been involved in a number of musical projects in the past. He contributed backing vocals and mandolin to Weezer track ‘Hang On’ from 2010 LP ‘Hurley’, has been a touring bass player in indie ‘supergroup’ Mister Heavenly (featuring members of Modest Mouse, The Unicorns and Islands) and also sang on tracks taken from Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Scott Pilgrim Vs The World.
The tracklisting for ‘True That’ is:
‘Clay Pigeons (Blaze Foley cover)’
‘What Gives (… I Can’t Live Like This)’
‘Of A Thursday’
‘Old Grey Whistle’
‘Oh Nadine (You Were In My Dream)’
Earlier this year, Michael Cera – who rose to fame as George Michael in cult US comedy Arrested Development – was also confirmed to be starring in new comedy show How And Why. Written and directed by Charlie Kauffman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind), it will look at the life of a man who can “explain how and why a nuclear reactor works but is clueless about life”.
