New from comedian, banjo master Steve Martin, and The Steep Canyon Rangers!

On The Long-Awaited Album, actor, comedian and banjo/bluegrass musician Steve Martin reconnects with his backing band the Steep Canyon Rangers, who previously contributed to 2011's Rare Bird Alert, 2013's Love Has Come for You and 2014's Live.

The Long-Awaited Album's lead single, "Caroline" is a banjo-slathered number that manages to be unfailingly jolly even as it dissects a brutal break-up. The song opens not long after the title character has unceremoniously dumped Martin's narrator, and he's still hung up on her: "Can you tell me why you left me standing in the parking structure/ Caroline, I was the almost-perfect boyfriend ever for you/ And you even said that to me one time at the Olive Garden."

"Research has shown that there are many, many songs with the title 'Caroline,'" Martin tells Rolling Stone. "However, this is the only good one."
