Recently Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis announced his upcoming solo record Tied to a Star on Late Night with Seth Myers. With the announcement came the first glimpse of the upcoming LP with a song called “Every Morning”. Well it looks like Mascis thinks it’s time you hear another track so he’s released the new cut “Wide Awake”. It a song ringing with a beautiful plucked guitar riff that made me wonder how someone can pick that quickly. As if the song wasn’t wonderful enough already, Cat Power lends her angelic vocals as well.
Tied to a Star will be released on August 29th, listen “Wide Awake” below:
