Alden Penner, former frontman of Montreal's The Unicorns, is set to release a new EP under his own name called Canada In Space.

To support the release, the songsmith will be touring the UK this summer accompanied by Michael Cera. Yes, that Michael Cera. Penner's upcoming live shows will feature a live band of Cera, Laura Crapo and Farley Miller, and he will be playing a variety of new material and older classics.

Speaking about the EP, Penner said:

“There are more Canadians than any other nationality represented in the planned Mars colony. The “Canada In Space” EP is an imagining of the dreams, reveries, phantasms, hallucinations, psycho-spiritual projections, naïve mythologies, actions, visions and experiences of an abandoned crew before, during and after it’s permanent journey to Mars; the compression of time; dispersion, fragmentation of states and generations in space; ultimate detachment & wormholes.”

The Canada In Space EP is due 29 June on City Slang on digital and vinyl formats.
