Sonic Youth's June Album "Replete With Juicy Supersonic Songs"

By |

Sonic Youth are reportedly in the final stages of recording their new album, the band's first since 2006's Rather Ripped. Thurston Moore tells Uncut the new album, which is still being called The Eternal, is "a record replete with juicy supersonic songs!" The band hopes to release their 16th studio album in June and will be their first as members of Matador Records' galaxy of stars. "For Matador, the opportunity to work in partnership with a group who've made such an profound impact on our roster/hometown/collective consciousness was one to jump at," the label said in a statement when the signing was announced. The group also premiered two new songs during a concert at Brooklyn's McCarren Pool last summer. Sonic Youth were previously signed to DGC from 1990's Goo until Rather Ripped (Though the band's pre-Goo catalog was later reissued via DGC.)
