Former Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg will release two albums of new material as well as a DVD in October. The singer-songwriter's Come Feel Me Tremble, featuring fourteen new tracks as well as a cover of Jackson Browne's "These Days," is due October 21st, as is a DVD version of the documentary of the same name.
Otto Zithromax and Rick Fuller directed the documentary, which captures Westerberg on tour last year in support of his double release Stereo/Mono. The film debuted this summer in San Francisco and will get a limited release in theaters around the country this fall.
Also planned for October is Dead Man Shake, a new collection of blues songs from Westerberg's Grandpaboy alter-ego. "I've created a confusing nut for them to crack," Westerberg told Rolling Stone about Grandpaboy, under which he put out Mono last year. "It's this dead character who plays rock & roll. It seemed like this is a perfect extension of taking a lot of drugs and being wasted and swinging from chandeliers. This is just as daring and stupid and redundant."
