Paul Westerberg and Juliana Hatfield have released a new song as The I Don’t Cares.

The collaborative project between Westerberg and Hatfield first came to light earlier this year, when they released a single, “1/2 2 P“, on Halloween.

They have followed that up with “King Of America“, which is available to buy from iTunes for $0.99.

An album, Wild Stab, is reportedly due in the New Year.

The I Don’t Cares is Westerberg’s first new music since The Replacements disbanded earlier this year – for the second time.

Westerberg announced from the stage at Primavera Porto on Friday, June 5 that it was be their final show together, reports The Guardian. He also noted that the rest of the band – who reformed in 2013 – had stayed at their hotel rather than soundchecking, calling them “lazy bastards to the end”.

Considering the band’s future in an interview with Uncut earlier this year, Westerberg said, “There’s a 50/50 chance that we might not ever play another note, or it might last another 5 years. As of today, I don’t even know who’s in the band! My bet is that we’ll finish this year out with the same four as last year, hopefully no one will die, and we’ll reassess. If it continues to be fun, we’ll play. If it’s not fun, we can at least get it up for the show. It’s what I wanna do for now, anyway.”

The January 2016 issue of Uncut is now on sale in the UK – featuring Paul Weller, David Bowie, Best Of 2015, Roger Waters, Father John Misty, Pere Ubu, Robert Forster, Natalie Prass, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen, Sunn O))), Jonny Greenwood, Arthur Lee & Love, Neil Young, Janis Joplin and more.
