Music: Surprise new song from Paul Westerberg
Former Replacements leader unceremoniously unveils new track.
Track: Paul Westerberg – My Road Now
File under: a string-laden piano ballad that gets off to a typically disjointed start (“Fuck me!”) but settles in just fine
My Road Now showcases the always enigmatic Replacements bandleader solo at the piano, and features the great line in the refrain: ‘This is my road now and you can hit it baby’. Prime-time Westerberg.
This track is part of an ongoing series of music that Westerberg’s recorded in his basement and is casually distributing on the web.
