Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has launched a new project called Chelsea Light Moving and announced their debut track, "Burroughs," on the band's blog. Frontman Moore is joined by guitarist Keith Wood, bassist Samara Lubelski and drummer John Moloney in the new group, and their William S. Burroughs-inspired debut song is a jagged headbanger.

Moore has been busy lately: despite splitting with ex-wife and Sonic Youth bandmate Kim Gordon last October, the pair has been recording new material with Yoko Ono. The future of Sonic Youth is still unclear.

Chelsea Light Moving will release another song next week, but "Burroughs" is available now on the Matador Blog.
