Sonic Youth have confirmed they are to release a new album next year.
The band performed 2 new songs – James Run Free and Cool Thing – during a show on Friday and Thurston Moore commented afterwards that they are looking to begin writing the follow up to Rather Ripped this spring saying:
“We haven’t gotten together in about four months, we’ve been taking a nice sort of break, which is good. I’ve been actually able to escape into the basement. We’re going to Australia next week for about two weeks then we’ll come back and start writing.”
