X founding members and singers Exene Cervenka and John Doe have formally released their first studio recordings together since 1993 on Singing and Playing, from the new Orange County-based Moonlight Graham Records label.

The collection comes on the heels of John Doe's highly acclaimed 2011 LP Keeper and includes seven studio tracks they recorded together in 2010 and previously sold only at stops on their joint tour that year. Those recordings are supplemented by two songs Doe and Cervenka recorded live last year at Moonlight Graham’s store in downtown Orange, including an updated rendition of X’s “See How We Are.”

X continues to tour the US and will head to Europe in support of Pearl Jam next month. You can find those tour dates here (
