Stephen Malkmus has shared a new song, "Juliefuckingette." While recorded in the same sessions as this year's folky, excellent Traditional Techniques, the song is a little more the kind of poppy indie rock number you associate with Malkmus, in addition to his standard wry wordplay. You can listen below.

In other news, Malkmus has rescheduled his North American tour for next spring, with dates currently set to kick off March 2 in Minneapolis and wrapping up April 24 in Seattle, with the new NYC date happening March 14 at Webster Hall. Let's hope the pandemic is under control by then. All tour dates are listed below.

We talked with Malkmus back in February about Traditional Techniques and its folk influences.

Pavement were supposed to reunite for Primavera Sound this year but that was put on hold till next year, too.
