Attention, Silverchair Fans: Daniel Johns Returns

If you were part of the Alternative Nation of the 1990s, you’ll know that Australia’s Silverchair was beloved by a substantial number of alt-rock kids. They’ve been AWOL for many years but now leader Daniel Johns has returned–and he’s all growed up.

Johns’ solo album is called Talk (out now)–and it’s a bit different than what you might expect. He says that “making a big rock record would have been stupid.”

Here’s the first single and video.

Here’s a sampler of the full album.
