Many of you keen-eared Baeblers probably have already heard news about the former member of a band we all used to love... and it's good news. Jemina Pearl, the former female face of Be Your Own Pet has struck out on her own and plans to release an album in the fall, entitled Break It Up.

Pearl has been touring solo since January of '09, when she played her first post-BYOP show with former drummer John Eatherly. The duo began writing cutsie 1960's bop-ish tunes towards the end of the bands time together, and finally found an opportunity to start performing them earlier this year. Ecstatic Peace picked up the record for a fall release.

One of the tracks is a duet with Iggy Pop entitled "I Hate People," which sounds vaguely like it contains the angsty edge that Pearl captured with style in BYOP... but according to the wires, we shouldn't expect the stuff to be so punky. "Her defiant sneer is now complimented with pop melodies that make it clear hers is a voice to be reckoned with." We can't wait to find out what that means.

Break It Up is out October 6th.
