The Replacements Discuss “Likely” Reunion Album With Potential Songs Like “Dead Guitar Player”
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.
