Thurston Moore has released a new song, “Cease Fire“.
The track is available as a free download through Moore’s website.
“Guns are designed to kill and we, as non-violent human beings, are against the killing of any person or animal,” says Moore in a statement on his site. “The song is also about the power of love, in all its freedom of choice. A power that no gun can extinguish as love will rule always. Melt down your guns and kiss your neighbor.”
The Thurston Moore Group’s new album, Rock’n’Roll Consciousness, is due in spring. Speaking to Uncut for our Album Preview, Moore said, “The title came to me while I was teaching at the Jack Kerouac School for Disembodied Poetics, a summer writing workshop at Neuropa University. It got me in tune with ideas of art as basic positive activism in the face of oppression. So a lot of talk about the raising of consciousness, and I started thinking of what I really love about rock’n’roll and making noise.”
The April 2017 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring our cover story on Björk.
