Thurston Moore Reveals Solo Album Details + Releases New Song

Phil Sharp

While the upcoming album from former Sonic Youth co-leader Thurston Moore is considered a solo record, it feels a bit more like a full-length from an alternative supergroup.

‘The Best Day,’ Moore’s first solo record since 2010’s ‘Demolished Thoughts,’ will be released on Oct. 21 via Matador and features the same star-studded backing band he’s been performing with lately: My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe, U.K. singer-songwriter James Sedwards and Moore’s Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley.

The band is currently on the European festival circuit with planned stops at the For Noise Festival in Switzerland and Rock en Seine in Paris before they head stateside next month for an appearance at Chicago’s Riot Fest. After that, they’ll be opening on tour for Sebadoh. Get the complete tour details here.

‘The Best Day’ will be available on digital and CD formats as well as a double-LP vinyl edition. Get information on the album here.
