The ever-prolific Ty Segallhasreleased two albums in October, taking him up to five in total for the year. “Class War,” a cover of The Dils original, is proof of why Segall heads never tire of him flooding them with new music.

Take a tour through Ty Segall’s musical psyche with his new solo album, Fudge Sandwich, a collection of Segall’s take on eleven songs that were originally done by other people. These aren’t just cover versions. Cover versions happen at weddings and high school band battles. The songs here are what happens when someone loves a song so much, they need to get inside it and let it propagate and transform into what it would have been if they had actually written it. Equal parts reverence and reimagination, this album shows Segall inhabiting the world of a song’s intent, filtering it through the muse that drove this year’s exceptional Freedom’s Goblin. Cluttered, passionate and inspired, the songs are barely recognizable, irresistible and by album’s end, present a cohesive collection that stands proudly alongside the best of Segall’s considerable output. Covers album includes songs by War, The Spencer Davis Group, John Lennon, Funkadelic, The Dils, Neil Young, Gong, Amon Düül, Rudimentary Peni, The Grateful Dead, and Sparks.

Ty Segall has shared his cover of the Spencer Davis Group’s “I’m A Man” off his forthcoming covers album Fudge Sandwich, out October. 26th through In The Red Records. The album features covers of songs from Amon Düül II, John Lennon, Sparks, War, Funkadelic, Rudimentary Peni, Grateful Dead and more.

“I’m A Man” finds Segall wearing his influences on his sleeve. One can easily trace the L.A. musician’s style back to the raucous beat-rock of Spencer Davis and his protgee Steve Winwood, and Segall seems to know that he’s treading on hallowed ground. The 1966 original is basically unchanged here, save for a fresh coat of the fuzz that Segall is famous for.

The album continues Segall’s penchant for fast-paced release cycles. Fudge Sandwich is his third release of 2018 alone, following January’s Freedom’s Goblin and July’s White Fence collaboration Joy. Fudge Sandwich’s release comes in the middle of Segall’s solo acoustic tour. Listen to “I’m A Man”
