Dinosaur Jr. bassist and Sebadoh frontman Lou Barlow has announced a new, limited edition 7-inch solo release. The 7-inch contains two new songs, each recorded with a full band, and it’s available this Friday, April 13th, via Joyful Noise.
The release will be limited to just 500 hand-numbered copies on bottle-green vinyl. As a preview of the 7-inch, Barlow has shared a music video for “Love Intervene”. The trippy, colorful clip reflects the song’s whimsically bright keys, which serve to anchor some fervent electric strumming and a stirring chorus from Barlow.
“I made the video on iMovie, and recorded the song with a rhythm section that live in the small town I live in, Greenfield MA,” Barlow told BrooklynVegan. “It was a way to battle back against a difficult winter, recording under the threat of snow-days (and children at home), family emergencies, jury duty and the cloud of uncertainty that seems to be hanging over everything right now.”
Watch the video below, and pre-order the 7-inch here.
Barlow is currently touring the East Coast on a trek that will include a few house shows. Check out those dates, as well as the 7-inch’s artwork, which depicts Barlow shortly after breaking his collarbone, below.
