Jake Shears has confirmed the details of his debut solo album.

The Scissor Sisters vocalist will release the self-titled LP on August 10. Speaking about it, he said:

"I created the record that I wanted to hear, that I felt had been missing from my life. It took time, was handcrafted and is something that no one else could have made. These songs were cooked low and slow in the South, in Kentucky and New Orleans, with humor, heartbreak and horns. If it sounds expensive, that’s because it was. This is the sound of actual human beings, playing real instruments onto tape. It took two years to make and for months I slept in the studio, behind the old upright piano. Whenever I had any self-doubt, I reminded myself— this is exactly how all of my favorite records were made, with fingerprints, sweat and honesty. It’s a record about finding yourself, again."

Head below to check out a video for the record's lead single, Creep City, as well as its artwork and tracklist.
