Update #2: Official pre-orders are now up.

Update: I've heard from a reliable source this information is incorrect. The record actually isn't finalized yet (Nate keeps wanting to add more stuff) but an early June release is still probable.

Nate Ruess' new album Grand Romantic was up for pre-order on Amazon for a few hours this morning. It contained a June 23rd release date and the following tracklisting:

2. AhHa

Lots of Nate Ruess news over the past few days -- that's what happens when a new act gets rolled out. Anyway, Nate Harold has been announced as Nate's bass player. Also, to try and combine multiple stories into one: According to a press release today, Nate's latest single "contains backing vocals from Swedish muse, Lykke Li, along with guitar riffs from iconic Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer."

This is probably my favorite song I've ever written. The one I've listened to the most on repeat. And I can't pinpoint what it is about it that makes its so special to me. Which makes me love it even more.

Nate Ruess from Fun. talks with Rolling Stone. Album due in the Summer.
And based on the new songs he played for Rolling Stone, he's realized that ambition isn't a bad thing. His still-untitled solo album (tentatively due out this summer) is brimming both with stadium-sized anthems – "Nothing Without Love," which he says will be the first single, is a worthy successor to "We Are Young's" stomp and scope, and "Great Big Storm" follows the same ELO-illuminated path as Some Nights' "Why Am I the One" – and quiet ruminations like "Take It Back," a somber ballad punctuated by a guitar solo courtesy of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy.
