Former Grateful Dead guitarist—and current Dead & Company guitarist—Bob Weir has announced a new solo album.

Blue Mountain, which is set for a September 30 release via Columbia/Legacy Recordings, is Weir's first solo album in a decade and his first solo set of entirely new material in 30 years.

It was produced alongside Josh Kaufman and features collaborations with Josh Ritter and instrumental contributions from Aaron and Bryce Dessner of indie-rock band the National.

In addition, Weir announced a brief North American tour that will take him to a handful of theaters this fall. You can check the dates, and Blue Mountain's tracklist, below.
