The reunited Replacements have been playing more and more concerts lately and even made their grand return to late-night TV. So of course there’s been speculation about a new album too — something more substantial than the benefit EP they made two years ago for former guitarist Slim Dunlap, which didn’t even feature any Paul Westerberg originals. Now a Rolling Stone feature confirms that such a release is “likely.” The band has been storing up new songs with pointed titles such as “Are You In It For The Money?” and “Dead Guitar Player” (presumably a reference to the late Bob Stinson because it was written before Dunlap’s illness). The new album would be the eighth Replacements full-length and first since 1990’s All Shook Down. Read the full story at Rolling Stone.
