There's soon to be a new album from The Rentals , the side project of Weezer frontman Matt Sharp . The album, called Lost in Alphaville , will feature ten tracks and is the first release from the Rentals in 15 years. Sharp has enlisted some help from the Black Keys ' Patrick Carney , though it's unclear whether Carney will also help out on the handful of dates the Rentals will play in support of the new release.
Lost in Alphaville hits bricks-and-mortar stores and digital outlets on August 26.
