Actor Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development) added “musician” to his resume last Friday (August 8) by quietly uploading an apparent debut solo album bandcamp profile. “true that” (album art above) is not the first foray into music by the 26-year-old actor, who has worked with Weezer and toured with Mister Heavenly on bass, an instrument he also played in the 2010 film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Cera is also a member of The Long Goodbye. This solo album, comprised of 18 tracks of mostly instrumental lo-fi indie folk, was brought to the public’s attention August 12 via a plug from fellow actor Jonah Hill, who tweeted “My great friend Michael Cera not only is a brilliant actor, he also makes great music. Check it out: http://t.co/lbc8sDcSco”.
The album is certainly worth checking out, and is currently available to stream for free or download for a mere $7 on Cera’s bandcamp. Cera himself has not promoted the project, but if the album’s viral success is any indication, this may not be the last we hear about it.
