Simple Minds Frontman Jim Kerr Set For American Solo Debut

(Rocket Science) Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr has set a August 2nd North American release date for his solo debut album, Lostboy! AKA Jim Kerr.

The album, available since last May only in the UK and Europe, entered the UK charts at #94 and the UK Independent Chart at #8. The U.S. deluxe edition release will feature three additional bonus tracks (Mr. Silversmith, Karma to this Rain, Sad Stone Child), as well as feature a specially enhanced package.

Produced by Jez Coad (responsible for production on the last two Simple Minds albums), the album also features Coad on guitars and keyboards. In addition, Lostboy features Charlie Jones on bass (player with Robert Plant, Page/Plant, Goldfrapp) and longtime Simple Mind drummer, Mel Gaynor.

Regarding the project name and ethos, Kerr commented, "I didn't want to start a new band. I like my band (laughs)...and I didn't want a point blank Jim Kerr solo album either."
