Incubus singer Brandon Boyd is prepping to release his sophomore solo album

Incubus singer Brandon Boyd has long talked about releasing a new solo album, and now, he’s a bit closer to that goal. During a recent chat with Billboard, Boyd opened up about working on his next solo album and a number of other projects while Incubus are taking a break.

“It’s awesome,” Boyd said, regarding the new solo set. “When you hear it, you’ll probably be reminded of sailors riding unicorns and unicorns farting beautiful gift-making elves and things like that…rainbows, pots of gold…stuff like that.” Boyd added that he’d like the album to come out as soon as possible, but there are some logistical elements that need to be plotted out before the announcement is made.

On top of the new music, Boyd is also working on a book to go with the album. “It’s an art book and it looks like the music sounds,” he said.

As for the rest of Incubus, Boyd says they’ve been keeping busy during the band’s downtime, too. “Chris Kilmore has been doing a lot of DJ gigs and has been making a name for himself doing so,” Boyd explained. “[Guitarist] Mike Einziger just scored an independent film that’s coming out this week I think. [Bassist] Ben Kenney is making another solo record on the East Coast.”
