At the end of last year, Dinosaur Jr. announced that they would be heading back to the studio. Since then the world has locked down and there were worries that the band’s new record would be delayed.
Lou Barlow has now confirmed that the new Dinosaur Jr. album has been completed and he even shared a cut from the new record as part of a livestream.
Barlow shared the news over the weekend while livestreamming a short performance from his laundry room. “We just finished mixing the Dinosaur Jr. record. ‘Course we did it remotely,” he said.
“The gentleman named John Agnello who mixes all the Dinosaur records, mixed every one I’ve done in the last…what are we on, our fifth reunion record? He mixed it presumably by himself in a studio in North Carolina.”
During the stream Barlow also shared that he had contributed two songs to the new album also noting that one track didn’t make it as the pandemic set in and shut production down somewhat.
The new album from Dinosaur Jr.’s will follow 2016’s Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.
