Thurston Moore has shared a new song entitled May Daze from his continued collaboration with drummer Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth), bassist Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine), and guitarist James Sedward (Nøught) as the Thurston Moore Group (TMG).

May Daze was released over Bandcamp on 1 May, accompanied with a track description which read: “A soundtrack for our USA sisters + brothers to register as voters today, if you still need to – we can change the world – free all political prisoners – insurrection for common decency – rock n roll consciousness – more to come.”

Take a listen below:

The song was recorded during a session at The Church Studios in London, with famed English record producer Paul Epworth – whose album production credits include Adele’s 21, Florence + The Machine’s Lungs and Holy Fuck’s Latin.

May Daze is the latest of a string of singles to arrive from Moore this year. Other notable releases include Instant Transcendent Conjecture, a track conceived during TGM’s 2016 sessions with Epworth for their 2017 album, Rock And Roll Consciousness and NO GO, a song from Moore’s now-defunct group, Chelsea Light Moving.

Moore isn’t the only member of Sonic Youth to unearth and publish rarities this year. Last month, guitarist Lee Ranaldo shared three rare releases online – which included a tribute cover of Hanatarash’s My Dad Is Car.
