New sonic impulses

Next week former Hüsker Dü/Sugar conductor BOB MOULD – who’ll celebrate his
60th birthday next month – unleashes his fourteenth longplayer called BLUE HEARTS.

We got two cuts so far: ‘American Crisis‘ and ‘Forecast Of Rain‘ (listen below).
And here’s another new one. SIBERIAN BUTTERFLY is a striking stunner going
full steam ahead from the get-go. A raw rip-roaring rocker. Wham bam!

Mould about the song’s story: “As I kept writing, the narrative shifted toward themes of change, growth and freedom. These motifs are central to how we become our true selves.
This is how we begin our journey toward our true identities. It’s autobiographical as well.

I put myself through some self-hating years as a young gay man — never feeling ‘good enough,’ not recognizing the positive qualities I had to offer, while inhibiting the development of my gay identity. I hope for a world where all people can be what they want to be. Life seems shorter every day; maybe this simple song can be of use to people who are struggling to find their
true selves.”

The accompanying clip features Mould plus
drummer Jon Wurster and bassist Jason Narducy
