"Gene Ween" Sings Rod McKuen

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

For more than 25 years, Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween) crafted twisted pop songs as one half of the duo Ween. But now, he’s shed his persona to release a solo album called Marvelous Clouds, consisting entirely of work by the best-selling poet and soft-rock balladeer, Rod McKuen. We’ll talk with Freeman about stepping out from behind his pseudonym, struggling with addiction, and taking on the challenge of soft rock.

I've been a fan of Ween since Pure Guava and they are some of my favorite artists. The album was introduced to me by a friend as being "some kind of art project or something". Ween has more range in artistic style than any other band I can think of. It does not surprise me to see Aaron doing Rod McKuen songs, as he's always a surprise.
