For the third Saturday in a row, Paul Westerberg has released a new song via his anonymous Soundcloud account — and this time it’s a twangy, acoustic shuffle called “Felin’ Good” that’s the most conventional of the batch of new songs he’s released over the course of this month.
The artwork accompanying the new song suggests Westerberg’s been joined by a couple local musicians: Tim O’Reagan, drummer for The Jayhawks, on backing vocals, and Keely Lane, of Ol’ Yeller, on drums.
“Feelin’ Good” was preceded last weekend by “Got It Made,” which features synths and simple drum-machine beat, and, the week before that, “Hawk Ripping at Your Throat,” a raw, somewhat atonal guitar track. All three of the songs were posted on the website Dry Wood Garage, now bearing a “PW” logo and credited to Westerberg’s publishing company Dry Wood Music.
The new Westerberg solo material comes amid the announcement of an archival live album from The Replacements that was recorded in 1986 and which will be released this October.
Check out the new song below.
