Superchunk have released a new song, ‘Everybody Dies’. Marking the band’s first new music since the departure of longtime drummer Jon Wurster, it’s the A-side of a new 7″ that’s out January 26 and includes a cover of Alastair Galbraith’s 1992 song ‘As in a Blender’. Take a listen below.
“The last years have often felt like an avalanche of loss—starting with Bowie and Prince, really, and then magnified by the pandemic and amplified by social media,” frontman Mac McCaughan shared in a statement. “Something that seems different recently is that we aren’t just losing legends from older generations — Pharoah Sanders or Toots Hibbert or Kidd Jordan or Tina Turner — but musicians we think of as peers and friends; people we have toured with and recorded with and shared beers with all over the world. It means of course we’re getting older, and while we know from an early age that yes, everybody dies, it doesn’t make these departures any less shocking.”
