Thurston Moore has been busy in the past summer playing Mark Ibold-less shows with Sonic Youth that have largely been based around material from the group’s ‘80s heyday. But he’s also found time to record some new solo material of his own, which will be released on Moore’s own Ecstatic Peace Library imprint on Dec. 1.
The release is titled In Silver Rain with a Paper Key, and will be packaged as two 7-inch singles and a book. The songs included are titled “You’ve Lost Your Lover” (see the 3:15 mark in the clip below for a live version of that), “Circulation,” and "Blood,” which were all recorded on a 12-string acoustic guitar.
The release is going to cost a fair amount of money--$50 in the U.S. and $60 in Canada, but the 69-page book of Moore’s photographs, lyrics, art, and poetry might just about make it worth spending that much cash. Head over here for more details on In Silver Rain with a Paper Key.
