Following 2011’s Demolished Thoughts and the end of Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore will release a new solo album on Matador. It’s titled The Best Day. According to a post on Sonic Youth’s website, it features collaborations with Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine bassist Debbie Googe, and London-based musician James Sedwards. (The release date of September 23 reported on Sonic Youth’s website is incorrect. The Best Day does not currently have an announced release date.)

A few songs on The Best Day feature Samara Lubelski, John Moloney (Sunburned Hand of the Man), and Keith Wood (Hush Arbors) from Moore’s band Chelsea Light Moving.

The post also describes the record as “Sweet, deadly and furthering the wild style TM exhibited all through Sonic Youth and beyond.” In a live clip from Portugal, below, Moore plays some of the new songs with Shelley and Sedwards. He also says the record is dedicated to his mother.

Meanwhile, Moore, Shelley, Googe, and Sedwards will tour Europe this summer and North America this fall under the name Thurston Moore Band.
