Mason Jennings debuts songs off his forthcoming 'Minnesota'

Mason Jennings took to the airwaves this week to debut some new songs on the Current's Morning Show, the first glimpse he's provided of his forthcoming full-legth, Minnesota. He performed two piano-centric songs off the album this morning, "Raindrops on the Kitchen Floor" and "Clutch," which he says "encapsulates the whole record in one song."

Jennings has a busy couple of months planned as he gears up to release Minnesota on September 13; he's planning a "top-secret" mini-tour of Minnesota that will bring him around the state for a series of intimate shows, plus he will sing the National Anthem at the Twins game on September 7 and perform an in-store at the Electric Fetus on Sunday, September 11 (pre-order the album through the Fetus to receive a ticket).

Fun fact: One of the tracks on the new record features Jason Schwartzman playing a toy piano.
