Thurston Moore (ex-Sonic Youth) has shared a new song, “Mx Liberty.” The politically themed track features the poet Radieux Radio and will be released as a 7-inch single on February 19 (which a press release jokingly refers to as “Not My President Day). The B-side is a cover of “Panik,” a 1977 song by French punk band Metal Urbain. Listen to “Mx Liberty” below. Above is the cover art.

The tracks were recorded in London and feature his current backing band: Deb Googe (My Bloody Valentine), James Sedwards (Nøught) and Jem Doulton (Dead Days Beyond Help).

A press release describes the song as such: “‘Mx Liberty’ raises It’s torch of truth and justice, the poet Radieux Radio and Thurston Moore unleash a punk rock broadside to the current man-boys of the USA government in response to their mockery of democracy. The lyrics (included in a collage insert with the single, which also includes a pin badge) describe ‘Mx Liberty’ climbing over any and all fences with our so-called ‘enemies’ in a radical heaven.” You can buy the 7-inch here.
