Last year, the band announced an extensive 20th anniversary reissue of ‘The Sophtware Slump’ which featured a fully re-mastered version of the 2000 album, and the first vinyl release of two of the band’s EPs, ‘Signal To Snow Ratio’ and ‘Through A Frosty Plate Glass’.

It also included ‘The Sophtware Slump ….. on a wooden piano’, which sees frontman Jason Lytle performing the entirety of the album solo on piano.

“Because of the pandemic, all of the sudden, I was looking at a real deadline to make the damn thing,” he said of the new piano album in a statement at the time. “Here we go, just like the old days.”

Speaking further about the reissue to NME, Lytle added: “I moaned and groaned a little, because you have to be in the right mindset to be OK with going back to nostalgia-ville, patting yourself on the back for things you did years ago. That can become a bit of a nuisance. But the thing that made it a lot more interesting is when Jim [Fairchild, guitarist] and I conceived of the solo piano versions – it became something new, and ended up not being such a chore.”

He also confirmed that the band are working on a new album, at the time.

“I have tonnes of songs, almost too many. I have a solo record I’m working on, an idea I’ve been wanting to do for years, and that’s gonna come first. But I am making another Granddaddy record,” he added.
