Evidently today is the day to announce new recordings, so here's another: Jared Mees, the man behind the tenderest of loving empires—Tender Loving Empire—has announced the release of Only Good Thoughts Can Stay, which will hit record store shelves and iTunes playlists on May 10.

Recorded at Type Foundry Studios with Adam Selzer (M. Ward, Laura Veirs, every band in Portland), Only Good Thoughts Can Stay features all the organized pop chaos you've come to expect from Jared Mees and the Grown Children. You can pre-order the album here. Enough with the words, here's the first single from the album.
