Listen: Paul Westerberg debuts new rocker ‘Dead Sick Of’ — and a Hank Williams cover

After dropping three new songs over the last three Saturdays, Paul Westerberg today doubled up, releasing the electric rocker “Dead Sick Of” via his anonymous Soundcloud account, plus a cover of Hank Williams’ “Someday You’ll Call My Name.” Listen to both below.

The two songs both appear on Westerberg’s Dry Wood Garage site, which continues to get tricked out with additional artwork (including a new photo of Westerberg himself). The Hank Williams cover — it’s not clear who’s singing it — is listed as “B/W,” suggesting it’s to be taken as a B-side of “Dead Sick Of.”

Last week, Westerberg released the twangy “Feelin’ Good,” which was was preceded the previous 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.

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 songs below.
