A.C Newman, leader of The New Pornographers, will soon be releasing his third solo album, Shut Down The Streets, via Fire Records on the 22nd of October.

The beautifully catchy 'Encyclopedia of Classic Takedowns' has been made available (listen below) as a free MP3 to tide us all over until the LPs release.

We are to expect A.C Newman's live presence on our shores in "early 2013."
