Michael Cera teams with The Unicorns’ Alden Penner for EP and UK tour – listen

Penner and Cera will promote the 'Canada in Space' EP with a tour in June

Actor Michael Cera will appear on the new EP from The Unicorns‘ Alden Penner.

Penner releases his ‘Canada In Space’ EP on June 29 via City Slang, with Cera featuring on the track ‘Meditate’. You can listen to that, as well as a song called ‘Breathe to Burn: Part II’ via Pitchfork below.

Penner said of the EP: “There are more Canadians than any other nationality represented in the planned Mars colony. The Canada in Space EP is an imagining of the dreams, reveries, phantasms, hallucinations, psycho-spiritual projections, naïve mythologies, actions, visions and experiences of an abandoned crew before, during and after its permanent journey to Mars; the compression of time; dispersion, fragmentation of states and generations in space; ultimate detachment & wormholes.”

Cera will join Penner on tour in the UK this June, playing shows in London, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Brighton and Dublin. Cera will play in Penner’s band and perform his own songs.

Cera released his debut LP ‘True That’ last year. Following the release, Cera told Stereogum: “It’s surprising to me that people are aware of it now, and are listening to it. I guess I’ll just see what that’s like [to adjust to]. I’m always trying to play music with friends. So I don’t know that I’d add anything to this or just leave that alone.”

London 100 Club (June 23)
Bristol Exchange (24)
Manchester Gullivers (25)
Leeds Belgrave Music Hall (26)
Edinburgh Midnight Circus (27)
