'The Office's' Creed Bratton to Release Audio-Biography Album
Creed Bratton is back with more music.
The actor, known for his role on The Office as a former '60s rock star, is releasing a new concept album titled Tell Me About It. Released as a three-act audio-biography, the CD tells the story of Bratton's life through songs.
"After The Rubbermen and I started the album, Dave Way, my producer said, 'This is the story of your career. He said you should make this a concept album,' " Bratton said in a statement. "The three acts are like a play. It's a story that takes you along in a psychedelic way."
Bratton was a former member in the '60s folk-rock band The Grass Roots.
Tell Me About It will be available in three EP-sized “acts,” with the first act released Tuesday. Acts two and three will be out May 7 and 21, respectively. The full-length vinyl version will be out May 21.
Additionally, Bratton will perform two dates in California: April 20 in Coarsegold's Chuckchansi Casino and April 21 at Oakland's Yoshi's.
