Alt-rock godfather Tyson Meade will return this spring with a new solo album. After spending years living and teaching in Shanghai, the Oklahoma native will release Tomorrow in Progress on May 20. Spanning a total of 10 tracks, the upcoming LP features contributions from current Smashing Pumpkins bassist Nicole Fiorentino, longtime Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, the Flaming Lips keyboardist Derek Brown, and a violin prodigy by the name of Haffijy, who inspired the collection.

I am nearly finished with the record. I go to LA in a few weeks to mix the remaining tracks and maybe enjoy some sun. For your amusement, here is a clip of my dad playing harmonica. Maybe this is where I get my musical talent…or maybe not. Enjoy! I will send another update from LA. Thanks again to All About Travel for helping to make this happen!

On July 20th I did a write up on Oklahoma’s native rocker, Tyson Meade and
shared his Kickstarter project that will help him record his project in China. Today we bring you Tyson interviewing Haffijy in Shanghai. I will let Tyson take it from here…
This is Tyson Meade. Many years ago, I had a somewhat wild band called Chainsaw Kittens. We toured with artists like Iggy Pop, Janes Addiction, and P.I.L. (sing the Neil Young line here This is the story of Johnny Rotten – Johnny Rotten, Rotten Johnny). And bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows and the Flaming Lips were our contemporaries. Incidentally, the Flaming Lips recorded one of my songs!
