Yesterday, we at Stereogum published our cover story on punk rock hero Bob Mould. If you missed it, don’t feel bad; we all got sucked into that David Bowie sadness-hole yesterday. But you should know something that Mould announced in that story: Mould has a new solo album called Patch The Sky coming out in March, and that is good news indeed. The former Hüsker Dü/Sugar frontman recorded the LP with the truly great bash-rock power trio he’s been recording and touring with for the past few years; it features Superchunk/Mountain Goats drummer Jon Wurster and Split Singles bassist Jason Narducy backing him up. And first single “Voices In My Head” is the sort of soaring hooky, straight-ahead rock rager that Mould has been doing so well for so long. In director Alicia J. Rose’s video, we see Mould attempting to get a grip and ghostly versions of himself yell at him. Check it out below.
