Listen: Bob Mould’s piercing song “Hey Mr. Grey”

on April 01, 2014, 10:58am

Bob Mould is prepping his 11th solo album, Beauty & Ruin, for a June 3rd release via Merge Records. Today, the Hüsker Dü legend shares the forthcoming effort’s first single, “Hey Mr. Grey”.

Coming in at just over two minutes, “Hey Mr. Grey” makes up for its brevity with a potent dose of blitzing power chords and Mould’s piercing wit (he plays the role of the grumpy aging rocker, yelling “Get off my yard!”). Mould may be getting older, but he’s far from losing his edge. Listen in below.

For the LP, Mould was joined by his longtime backing band bassist Jason Narducy (Split Single) and drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk). The end results spans 36 minutes and is described as a “compact epic.”
