Esopus

Mr. Merritt will be contributing a track to a CD being released with the art magazine Esopus's fifteenth issue.  The song will apparently be a tribute to one of the few television programs for which Stephin Merritt has expressed adoration, Meerkat Manor.  Mr. Merritt expounds on his love for this show in this interview from a couple years back.

Obviously, I'm excited at the prospect of new Stephin Merritt songs, but it's odd exactly HOW excited I am!!  After all, this year has been so goddamn good to me in terms of new Merritt songs.  I am, though, a selfish cock.

Thanks to the humble but wonderful folks over at Stephinsongs for this bit of information.  Much respect and love to them.
