It's Nov. 10, the day many have been anxiously awaiting. A big pop album arrived on Friday. Not that one. This one.

The Neighbourhood frontman Jesse Rutherford has released his debut solo album &, which is out today via Columbia Records. Featuring production contributions from Dylan Brady, Lars Stalfors, MD$ and Alex Leone and Take A Daytrip, the new record follows The Neighbourhood's own surprise EP HARD, which was released in September.

And while the band has often been relegated to the alt-rock space, Rutherford has big pop moments on his first solo project. In fact, & is arguably the most exciting pop record released today. And it was only announced a week ago.

& includes previously released tracks "Born to Be Blonde" and "Drama." In addition to the album, Rutherford will also be performing Nov. 24 at The Echo in Los Angeles.
