A new band called Tinted Windows is reportedly putting out an album this spring. Not news, right? What if we told you that the band features former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger on bass, Cheap Trick’s Bun E. Carlos on drums, and Taylor Hanson, yes that Hanson, on vocals.
Both Born to Rock & Roll and The Daily Swarm are reporting that the “supergroup” Tinted Windows are planning a surprise unveiling shortly. In fact, Taylor Hanson’s local newspaper Tulsa World contacted his publicist about the story and got a reply that there is “no ‘official’ word” on the project.
So this news is not “official,” but Hanson’s publicist has basically given it away.
*** Update: Tinted Windows will play their first show at Billboard’s South by Southwest showcase on March 20 in Austin, Texas.
