The Monkees are celebrating their 50th anniversary by releasing a new album, Good Times!, with songs written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, Neil Diamond, Carol King, and more.
The Monkees, who started as a television band on the ‘60s TV series of the same name and eventually formed a real band, have been doing reunion tours and albums since the 1980s. Good Times!, which arrives on June 10th, will be the group’s first release since the passing of Davy Jones in 2012 and their last album, 1997’s Justus.
The album is produced by Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger.
