     Daniel Johnston enlists Deer Tick, Unknown Mortal Orchestra for Space Ducks: Soundtrack

    Singing/song-writing cult hero Daniel Johnston is back with his first studio album in three years, and the 18th one of his career. The Space Ducks: Soundtrack is envisioned as a musical companion to Johnston’s own comic book, Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness, which he revealed at this year’s SXSW.

    The 12-track LP features seven original compositions by Johnston, plus songs from Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Deer Tick, Eleanor Friedberger, Fruit Bats, and Lavender Diamond. Production was handled by Grupo Fantasma member Adrian Quesada. All the cuts take inspiration from the Space Ducks comic, currently available at your local comic shop, in a free iPad app, and at hihowareyou.com.
