Former Dream Syndicate leader Steve Wynn will issue Northern Aggression, his third album with The Miracle 3, this fall — and to tease the upcoming release, he’s giving away a free MP3 of the record’s guitar-heavy opening track “Resolution,” which can be streamed and downloaded below.
The 11-track album — Wynn’s first with his Miracle 3 cohorts Jason Victor, Linda Pitmon and Dave Decastro since 2005’s …tick…tick…tick — is due out Nov. 30 on Yep Roc Records, the label announced this week. Yep Roc also has just posted a five-minute video preview of the record featuring interviews with Wynn and his bandmates, plus studio footage and song clips (see full tracklist and promotional video below).
In that video, Wynn discusses the recording of Northern Aggression, saying, “This record is maybe our most aggressive record in a lot of ways, not just cause some of it rocks really hard — we’ve done that before — but I think aggressive in that all the elements are taken to its own extreme. The weird, hazy, dreamy psychedelic songs are very much that way, the drone rockers drone harder, everything is just really exciting.”
