    Former Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty took a sharp turn into alt hip-hop on the fan-funded Stellar Motel, his first all-original studio album in three years.

    Produced by DJ Good Goose, the guest list is impressive and includes rappers MC Frontalot, Miss Eaves, Big Dipper, Jay Boogie, Kim from the Japanese band Uhnellys, country singer Laura Lee Bishop, Brooklyn saxophone-and-drums band Moon Hooch and the female rap trio Hand Job Academy.

    Wow, right?

    The album is out September 16.

    Doughty will play a run of shows through the American Northwest in early September, followed by a national tour in October and November. These will be duo shows, with longtime foil Andrew "Scrap" Livingston on cello; all will be with Doughty's "world-renowned, award-winning" Question Jar Show.
