Dinosaur Jr frontman J Mascis will be releasing a new solo album, Tied to a Star, at some point this year which follows 2011’s Several Shades of Why. Sub Pop say music and more info on the album is coming tomorrow (6/10), but in the meantime the label’s Megan Jasper (one of J’s lifelong friends) sat down with him for a video interview about the new LP. They call it “A Revealing Conversation with J Mascis,” and anyone who’s ever seen J interviewed before should know just how talkative and revealing he does get. You can check that out below.

In the video, they mention J has a solo tour on the way and though all of those dates haven’t been announced yet, we do know he’s playing Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest and a NYC show on October 17 at Bowery Ballroom. It’s just J alone at these shows, but even in an acoustic setting, he still kicks on the distortion and rips a few of those classic solos. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (6/13) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (6/11) at noon.

Meanwhile, Dinosaur Jr will be back in NYC much sooner to headline the free 4Knots Music Festival (7/12) with Mac DeMarco, Speedy Ortiz, Viet Cong, Nude Beach and more.

All currently known J Mascis dates are listed, with the LP artwork, interview video, and a live video, below…
