New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman has revealed via Facebook more details about his previously announced third solo album, which will be titled ‘Shut Down the Streets’ and will be supported this fall by a North American solo tour. The singer also has posted a new track titled ‘I’m Not Talking,’ which you can check out below.

Newman first mentioned the follow-up to his 2009 solo set ‘Get Guilty’ with a pair of tweets. “I’m 10 days away from finishing an album, with all the accompanying paranoia, elation, self doub  and exhaustion. That plus a baby son,” wrote Newman, who recently became a father, in a tweet posted on May 10. Another tweet followed later in the day. “It’s a solo album,” revealed the second. “When you have a kid, you have to make a warped confessional ’70s singer songwriter album. It’s a rock tradition.”

Newman’s fall trek kicks off on Oct. 12 in Toronto, with a set at the Exclaim! 20th Anniversary Concert Series and runs through Nov. 14 in San Diego, Calif., with Los Angeles-based Harriet opening several dates along the way.
