John Wesley Harding Returns As Wesley Stace For New Album

You may know him as John Wesley Harding, but his real name is Wesley Stace and Wesley has decided to return to his given name for the release of his latest album, "Self-Titled," September 17th.

We were sent these details along with a link for you to listen to the first single: Stace chose not to use his well-established stage name for Self-Titled due to the considerably more personal nature of the new songs. "Novels seem to take care of the intellectual business for me these days, and my songs have become a lot more intimate and autobiographical, requiring a different musical treatment entirely. It seemed ridiculous to sing them under any name but my own," notes Stace, adding, "It's time to bring everything under one roof."

Self-Titled features two songs, "When I Knew" and "Stare At The Sun," co-written with the Fiery Furnaces' Eleanor Friedberger. Both tracks appear in alternate versions on Personal Record, Friedberger's critically acclaimed new record co-written with Stace.
