Originally released in 2013, Standards was only available overseas. Omnivore is correcting that by offering the title here on CD and LP (with download card). To make the LP even more special, the first pressing will be available on clear vinyl, with black to follow.
Recruiting band members from his self-titled debut - including drummer Fred Maher and Matthew Sweet on bass, as well as former Commotion Blair Cowan on keyboards - Standards features 10 Cole-penned originals, plus a cover of John Hartford's 'California Earthquake.'
With a nod to the past, but always an eye toward the future, Standards will take its place among Cole's best work.
