Published Jan 13, 2009Since signing to Matador last fall, Sonic Youth have barely breathed a word about their forthcoming new album, leaving fans almost entirely in the dark as to what's in store and when they can expect to hear it. This week, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore finally broke the silence and dropped a few scant details on what will be the group's first indie release in nearly two decades.
While speaking to Uncut, Moore revealed that the band's Matador debut currently has the working title The Eternal and that the album should be out this June. As far as what kind of sound fans can expect, he simply said to be ready for "juicy supersonic songs."
Unfortunately, Moore didn't shed any more details than that. But hey, at least it's something.
In the meantime, you can always look forward to Sonic Youth's stage collaboration with Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones, where they will soundtrack a new performance by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company this spring in New York.
