Thurston Moore Offers New Single “Rewilding” for Earth Day: Stream

The post Thurston Moore Offers New Single “Rewilding” for Earth Day: Stream appeared first on Consequence.

Thurston Moore returns today to celebrate Earth Day with “Rewilding,” an ode to the UK’s land restoration and renewal program.

With a hypnotic, percussive-groove at the song’s center, Moore enters a nature-induced dream state. “This terrain is changing/ Rewilding, rearranging/ So I’m singing for animals/ Outside here just grazing,” Moore mutters at the song’s opening, with My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe laying a thick, repetitive bassline beneath him.

“Don’t you dare wake me/ A butterfly just kissed me,” he sings. Though there are traces of menace and doubt in the song’s trance-like, psychedelic aura, the environmental renewal that Moore describes lends itself to flourishing peace. Stream “Rewilding” below.

“Rewilding” isn’t just a Thurston Moore x Earth Day special, it’s the latest offering from his forthcoming album Samurai Walkman: Flow Critical Lucidity. He previously shared album cuts “Hypnogram” and “Isadora,” which arrived with a music video starring Sky Ferreira. Moore hasn’t disclosed the release day for Samurai Walkman: Flow Critical Lucidity yet, but a statement promises more details about the album will arrive soon.

In addition to working on his new album, Moore published Sonic Life, his memoir, last year. He was set to embark on a book tour, but had to cancel due to a “debilitating” health condition spawned from a heart rhythm abnormality. He provided an update in October, however, claiming that “the prognosis is very good” and was awaiting treatment. He appeared in bright spirits at Tennessee’s Big Ears festival back in March, so it seems that Moore is ready to get back on the road again.

Thurston Moore’s last solo album was 2021’s screen time.
