Thurston Moore Announces New Album ‘The Best Day,’ Releases Title Track: Listen

By Courtney E. Smith

One of Sonic Youth’s founding members, Thurston Moore, has announced he will release a solo album, The Best Day, on Oct. 21. And he’s made the first single available to go with it.

The track, “The Best Day,” (above) is the album’s title track. It, along with the full album, was recorded with James Sedwards, Deb Googe (of My Bloody Valentine) and Steve Shelley.

The Best Day is a record defined by positivity and radical love,” a press release about the album read. “The songs range from opener ‘Speak to the Wild,’ a Crazy Horse-like paean to anti-authority and activism, to ‘Vocabularies,’ a paean to a new realization of language which includes ALL people, including transgender.”

It goes on to say the album will also include a few all-instrumental tracks performed solely by Moore.

Moore and his band will tour as well, beginning this September across America, Europe and Asia.

The Best Day is Moore’s first solo album since 2010.
