Stream: Guided By Voices’ new album Please Be Honest

15-track collection features Robert Pollard playing on every instrument


    On April 22nd, the recently reunited Guided By Voices will release their new album, Please Be Honest, through GBV Inc. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full below courtesy of Noisey.

    In February, prolific band member Robert Pollard vowed to bring GBV out of retirement once again this year. The result of this revival is the 15-track collection, though, curiously enough, it features only Pollard playing on every instrument.

    Please Be Honest is the group’s 22nd album to date and first full-length since 2014’s Cool Planet.
