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.”
