Rock legend and Sonic Youth co-founder Thurston Moore has revealed today that his fifth studio album, Rock n Roll Consciousness, is set to arrive in stores next month on April 28th. The much-anticipated follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed The Best Day features five tracks produced by Paul Epworth (Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, London Grammar) and collaborations with his former Sonic Youth bandmate Steve Shelley and My Bloody Valentine’s Debbie Googe.
To whet his devotees’ appetite for the forthcoming LP, Moore has shared the video for lead single “Smoke of Dreams,” a sprawling, haunting ode to the spirits that inhabit the greatest city on earth. Moore proclaims “New York City is everything,” and we must say that we agree with him wholeheartedly.
Watch the video for “Smoke of Dreams” below, stay tuned for Rock n Roll Consciousness next month, and be sure to catch Moore live on tour this spring.
