Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller is releasing his solo album, Traveler, on May 12, and for it, he's enlisted backing band Black Prairie, composed of members of the Decemberists and R.E.M.

Ahead of May 12, the singer-songwriter has released the new album's first track, "Most in the Summertime," via Rolling Stone -- you can check it out below. When asked to compare Old 97's music to his solo work, Miller told the magazine, "Where the 97's record was raw and raunchy, these songs needed a more delicate touch."

Miller will head out on tour in April and you can find ticket information via his website.
