    The following is an excerpt from Michael Cera Quietly Releases Folky Solo Album

    Any true Michael Cera fan knows the actor also has musical skills – from adding backing vocals and guitar to Weezer's Hurley to playing live bass for indie-rock supergroup Mister Heavenly to strumming nerdily in this adorable scene from Juno. But now Cera's taken a bigger step into the music world with a solo album, true that, which he quietly posted last week on Bandcamp.

    Cera's friend and collaborator Jonah Hill gave the album a promotional push on Tuesday night, tweeting the link and writing, "My great friend Michael Cera not only is a brilliant actor, he also makes great music."

    The 18-track true that is an eclectic, lo-fi album filled mainly with vignette-like instrumentals – blending acoustic guitars with pianos, synths and left-field samples. Highlights include the folky instrumental "Too Much," the dreamy synth mantra "2048" and an intimate cover of Blaze Foley's "Clay Pigeons" (the latter featuring some charming vocal harmonies). The album costs $7 and includes three bonus tracks upon purchase.

    The following is an excerpt from Michael Cera Quietly Releases an Album That You Can Stream

    Michael Cera quietly released an album via a Bandcamp page, entitled “true that.” The “Arrested Development” star’s foray into music features 17 original tracks plus a cover of a Blaze Foley song. Cera’s agent confirmed that the recording is indeed by him.

    The recording is a collection of lo-fi folk songs, many of which are instrumental. Three of the tracks are less than 1 minute long, while another 6 clock in at two minutes or under.

    Stereogum points out that Cera previously has contributed to the bands Weezer and Mister Heavenly, among other musical pursuits. Still, the decision to release an album under his name with no fanfare caught many by surprise.
