Thurston Moore reveals plans to NME.COM
Sonic Youth a preparing to write a brand new album, which the band aim to release early next year.

The band performed two songs songs ‘Jams Run Free’ and ‘Cool Thing’ during the Marc Jacobs runway show at the Armory on Lexington Ave on Friday night, and speaking after the show, Thurston Moore said they’re gearing up to write the follow-up to 2006's 'Rather Ripped' this spring.

‘We haven’t gotten together in about four months, we’ve been taking a nice sort of break, which is good. I’ve been actually able to escape into the basement. We’re going to Australia next week for about two weeks then we’ll come back and start writing.’

Meanwhile, Moore will perform at SXSW in March, which he will attend with Ecstatic Peace acts Awesome Color and Tall Firs.

‘We just go down there just for fun. It’s kind of a weird thing because the bands don’t really make any money, hardly at all, and we tell them if you want to come and play, come and play but there’s not any money and you’ve gotta sleep in the street! It’s like 75 degrees, blue skies, and there’s barbecues… good times!”

so is NOW fair to assume they are looking towards a 2009 release?

i think some people will be happy they won't be rushing it and hoping for a chance

Yes! My first Sonics album as a fan. Anyone got any ideas what sort of sound it might have too it, the straightforward approach of Rather Ripped or back to more explorative territory, if their cover I'm Not There is anything to go by I suspect the former. To be honest, I don't really mind, they do them both so well. 2009 couldn't come too soon.

Rather Ripped was a fine album by general standards but it doesn't have the staying power that SY's other albums have. I want to hear some noise jamming.

Works for me.

And I actually liked Rather Ripped.

It wasn't anything grand, and I think that was good.

The whole was just good old-fashioned rock and roll (in the Sonic Youth sense of the word).

Early next year?! Aww they broke the trend. I liked Rather Ripped too, but it lacked noise.

FUCK YEAH. Hope they go more poppier, but if it is a trend they will revert to some noise, or as rob likes to call it skronk.

I was kinda meh on Nurse and Rather Ripped was fairly disappointing, but I have a feeling this album will be good.. no reason really. Just a feeling.

It won't be as good as this though:

I would like to address this question to Adam:
What was wrong with Nurse? I thought all the necessary boxes were ticked. Noise: Check
Jams: Check
Good Melodies: Check
Lee Songs: Check
Jim: Check

I'd like them to do something completely different to Rather Ripped, maybe something very noisy and dissonant.

Zero, I didn't dislike nurse, I just found it meh.

I think it starts out really strong but some of the songs dont' do anything for me (dude ranch nurse, arthur doyle hand cream, peace attack). It's mostly good but not something I want to put on often.

Peace Attack is great IMO. I believe it's my favourite one from the album.

So maybe they'll come back with a more experimental album... Look, back in 1995 they released a really pop album, Washing Machine, after a serie of pop records, and then they took three years to write A Thousand Leaves, which was preceded by SYRs, and A Thousand Leaves is far more experimental.

Now they're probably gonna release this on 2009 which means three years after Rather Ripped, a pop record, and they're about to release two new SYRs.

I predict a harsh noise / jazzcore album coming
