If you know the name Jemina Pearl, it's either because you're a fan of Be Your Own Pet or because you were stalking hotties on Myspace (don't act like you weren't). As the singer of Be Your Own Pet, which broke up last August, Pearl garnered many a Karen O comparison. But now, in a Beyonce-esque move, Pearl plans to release a new album under her own name.
Said album, which will be released this Fall by Ecstatic Peace Records, features the drummer of Be Your Own Pet, as well as (drum roll...) Iggy Pop, Thurston Moore and TV On the Radio's Dave Sitek. Three tracks were just dropped on Pearl's Myspace. We're super psyched on the single "Heartbeats", and Pearl seems psyched too, saying, "I'll probably kill myself after I finish this record 'cause I don't know how to top it, 'cause it's gonna be so fucking good." Oh yeah, and for all you internet stalkers out there, she's got a blog now.
