Set for release on May 21st is Micky Dolenz' take on a number of Monkees bandmate Mike Nesmith's tunes, titled Dolenz Sings Nesmith, according to Deadline. The album, which is being released on the Monkees-based rarity label 7a Records, was produced by Nesmith's eldest son Christian Nesmith, who also tours as part of his father and Dolenz' Monkees revue.
Dolenz Sings Nesmith features songs written throughout Nesmith's career — including his Monkees years. It will be released on 180-gram colored vinyl, on CD, as well as on all digital platforms.
Last summer Dolenz told Rolling Stone, “I’ve always been a huge fan of his songs. I think I first mentioned this idea to Nez years ago when we first got together for a tour with Peter (Tork) after Davy (Jones) passed. I don’t know where the idea came from, maybe from my friend Harry Nilsson and his (1970 Randy Newman tribute LP) Nilsson Sings Newman. I thought to myself, 'Wow, Dolenz Sings Nesmith.'”
