We’ve been anticipating the release of Thurston Moore’s Beck-produced LP, once titled Benediction, now awesomely dubbed Demolished Thoughts (which, as Matablog informs us, was taken from a lyric off The Faith’s “It’s Time”), and now the official announcement is here: Matador Records will release Moore’s 4th solo album on May 24, preceded by a pre-release MP3 and live performances.
As previously reported, harpist Mary Lattimore and violinist Samara Lubelski collaborated with Moore on the recordings, in addition to guest performers bassist Bram Inscore, drummer Joey Waronker (of the great Thom Yorke supergroup Atoms for Peace), and Beck himself. Based on the few solo-acoustic live performances I’ve seen from Moore, not to mention Beck(!), this record should be incredible. We’ll keep you posted with further details as they arrive.
