Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis Releases New Song, "See You at the Movies," Announces New Solo Album, North American Tour

Dinosaur Jr. singer and guitarist J Mascis will release a new solo album, Elastic Days, on November 9 via Sub Pop. He’s unveiled the first single from the record, “See You at the Movies,” which alternates breezy acoustic strumming with his trademark fuzz-heavy, strangled guitar leads.

Mascis recorded Elastic Days at his own Bisquiteen studio. He played most of the instruments himself, though there are also contributions from keyboardist Ken Miauri, Pall Jenkins (Black Heart Procession), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion, etc.) and Zoë Randell (Luluc). The album is the follow-up to his 2014 solo effort, Tied to a Star. Dinosaur Jr. also released their eleventh studio album, Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not, in 2016.

Elastic Days can be pre-ordered through megamart.subpop.com; select independent retailers will receive the limited Loser Edition on clear w/purple swirl vinyl (while supplies last).
