We've been hearing from Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth who has announced a new solo album. It's called Electroc Trim and it'll be released on September the 15th on Mute records. He's already shared the new single, “Circular (Right as Rain).”
Ranaldo’s last solo record, Last Night on Earth, was released in 2013.
Of the nine tracks on this new album six of them feature vocals by Sharon Van Etten (who’s also in the new video for Circular (Right As Rain)). The album also features contributions by Nels Cline of Wilco and Ranaldo collaborated with the New York-based author Jonathan Lethem on lyrics on six of the songs.
He told me more about it for BBC 6 Music News...
