The Dream Syndicate's Steve Wynn is releasing Decade, an 11-CD box set which collects solo works from 1995-2005, on October 23 on Real Gone Music. Most of the records he made during that period are out of print, and of the 166 tracks here, 57 of them have never seen the light of day before, and there are also 31 rarities, so this is a real boon for fans. You can check out the full tracklist below.

One of those rarities is "Milky White," a track from 2000 that was written with Eric "Roscoe" Ambel (The Del Lords, The Brandos) and released as part monthly singles series for then-cutting-edge MP3 site Emusic. "The idea was to choose a new collaborator each month, write a new song with that collaborator in mind and get it recorded and released immediately, almost like a sixties style of quick turnaround," Steve tells us. "It was fun and exhilarating and also grueling after a while. But Roscoe made it more the former than the latter since he was so good at coming up with an indelible, signature riff and so incredibly skilled and able in a recording studio. He and Linda Pitmon and I recorded and mixed this in one day at Cowboy Technical Studios in Brooklyn and had it out and online within 48 hours. And then I was on to the next month." There's definitely a Y2K vibe to this with the burning embers of trip hop heard in the production, but it's also very much a Steve Wynn song, too. You can listen to that below.

You can pre-order Decade now.

In anticipation of the box set, Steve will be playing a livestream show today (9/25) at 4 PM ET featuring songs from Decade. Tickets are on sale. Flyer for the livestream is below.
