Thurston Moore announces new album, Rock n Roll Consciousness, shares “Smoke of Dreams” video — watch

Featuring contributions from My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth members

    Thurston Moore stood for love and nonviolence on his most recent release, this month’s rattling “Cease Fire”. The former Sonic Youth frontman will soon add to his impressive catalog with a new solo album. Titled Rock n Roll Consciousness, it’s slated to hit shelves on April 28th via Harvest Records/Caroline International.

    The follow-up to 2014’s The Best Day collects five new songs. It was produced by Paul Epworth (Paul McCartney, Adele) at The Church studios in London and mixed by Randall Dunn (Marissa Nadler) in Seattle. Along with those studio wizards, Moore was joined by My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe as well as Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley.

    To preview Rock n Roll, Moore has broken off the contemplative lead single, “Smoke of Dreams”, which can be heard below via its New York City-centric music video.
