Chalk up another musical outlet for Jenny Lewis. She’s teaming up with her boyfriend, actor/musician Jonathan Rice, for a few tour dates this summer and, probably, a new album. The two kids are calling themselves Jenny and Johnny, adorably enough.
Johnny has played with and produced Jenny before, and she, in turn, contributed to his last album, Further Noth. But in case you missed that one, he also played Roy Orbison in the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.
The cute couple have a website that consists of an ouroboros and a mailing list signup, which will presumably provide more details about the forthcoming album.
