Remember Michael Cera? The lovable and awkward teenager from Arrested Development and Superbad? No? Well, you’re not alone. Since participating in the forgettable fourth season of Arrested Development, Cera has pivoted his career to directing, taking hallucinogens in South America, and as of this week: releasing music.
Yes, that’s right, George Michael Bluth quietly released a solo album this week. Titled true that and weighing in at a mammoth 18-tracks, the album mainly consists of instrumental arrangements that can be best described as “art.”
We have Cera’s Superbad co-star, Jonah Hill, to thank for bringing this masterpiece to our attention. The Academy Award-nominated actor tweeted about the album on Tuesday, calling Cera a “brilliant actor.” However, only classifying his music as “great.”
In all fairness, Cera is no stranger to music. In 2010 he joined indie supergroup Mister Heavenly as their touring bassist. That said, the following year the band released a studio album sans Cera’s sweet basslines.
