It’s been more than three years since the comedy world has been gifted with a new album from musical comedian Stephen Lynch. But our wait is almost over. On Nov. 13, Lynch will release Lion, an album that will include a studio CD and a live CD. According to Lynch, himself, his fifth effort will be the most musically advanced.

“I wanted this album to have the Americana flavor to it that I love so much in the music of, say, Neil Young or Patty Griffin or Ray LaMontagne. I think it does,” Lynch says. “And, I’m confident the songs are still funny, if a bit subtler than some of my earlier work. Astute listeners will detect a slight shift of direction, comedy-wise. Musically, it’s the best work I’ve ever done. I’m a little bit in love with it.”
