Billboard Exclusive: FAN's Meric Long Outlines Solo Project, Drops New Track 'Disappear'

FAN, the solo project of Meric Long (The Dodos), will debut his first 7" tomorrow, titled Fire/Disappear. Ahead of its release Billboard has shared B-Side song "Disappear," and chatted with Meric about the origins of FAN:

"The new project is a solo supplement to Long’s work in The Dodos and serves as a personal challenge for the guitarist as he explores several unfamiliar sonic territories, including home recording and a host of new sounds provided by synthesizers left from his late father.

“He left behind a couple synthesizers, and I sort of started messing with them,” Long tells Billboard. “When I started putting together the songs I had this library of like samples...and those came from literally just sitting in my garage and playing weird drone music for hours.”"
