Sing this corrosion to me
Indie-rock powerhouse Superchunk has resurrected its Halloween single tradition, today releasing the track “There’s a Ghost” — the band’s first new song in two years — with a cover of The Sisters of Mercy’s 1983 single “Alice” as the B-side. You can hear both below via Bandcamp.
Superchunk fronman Mac McCaughan on the new song:
“I didn’t write a song for probably the first six months of the lockdown. This is one of the first and it came just in time for Halloween. Jim and Jon came over with their masks on, and Laura tracked her bass in her bass-ment. Try and get some fresh air when you can, people!”
