Lee Ranaldo

Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and his band The Dust, who played one of the last-ever Maxwell's shows, recently announced their new album, and since we last spoke, more details on that album have been announced. It's called Last Night on Earth and it will be out on October 8 via Matador. Lee also just released the first single, "Lecce, Leaving," which should appeal to anyone who liked his last album, Between the Times and the Tides, or his poppier Sonic Youth offerings. You can stream that below, along with the tracklist, and that's the album artwork above.

Lee Ranaldo and the Dust will also be supporting the new album with a previously discussed tour, which, as mentioned, hits NYC on October 25 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show are still available.

Song stream, tracklist, and the list of all tour dates, below...

i'm having a hard time getting used to hearing Lee's songs with a real bass player.

Sweet!

Good tune. A Kim-less SY would be incredible.

What's this indie pop crap? Sounds like a rancid ex-rockstar with nothing to say or to experiment with.

This is such a great tune. I had to listen to it three times in a row in the car yesterday before I could even get to track 2.

Sounds awfully stiff and regimental. Middle-of-the-road doesn't suit you Lee. Take a page out of Thurston's book ;-)

dude this album is like sonic youth mixed with fuckin porcupine tree lol pretty sweet.

rock music is NOT a competition but there is something about luntzel's playing that encourages me to post this rant :-)

finally somebody else has noticed that. I've always found Lee sounded like Stipe, but haven't heard anyone else state that. I always hoped he'd sing more tracks. No problem with Kim or Thurston, I just always wanted more Lee.
