Even after the announcement that IFC will be picking up a new TV series from David Cross, the good news just keeps on rolling for the man the man’s fans. Looks like a new CD and DVD from America’s favorite joke-telling turtle is set to drop May 25. (Just kidding about that turtle thing, David. We love you. Cool?) The hilariously titled Bigger And Blackerer is Cross’s third comedy album and second DVD for indie stalwart label Sub Pop, and was recorded during Cross’s performance at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre. We’re looking forward to getting our grubby mitts on both copies, especially since each features material not included on the other.
So get ready for more Cross, kids – 2010 promises to be, in Chinese zodiac terminology, the year of the turtle. (David, allow us to offer you a complimentary fist-bump of apology.)
Pitchfork.com posted the track listing. And if you know anything about Cross’ way of naming his album tracks, is that he’s usually poking fun at what “traditional” comedians joke about or they just make no sense. There’s a little of both happening here. Check it out after the jump.
