Thurston Moore Debuts New Single “Rewilding”

The Daydream Library Series releases “Rewilding” by Thurston Moore to celebrate Earth Day 2024. It’s an introspective four minute and twelve second surprise inspired by the United Kingdom’s rewilding movement. “This terrain is changing / Rewilding, rearranging .…” Thurston sings over Deb Googe’s deep bass melody, percussionist Jem Doulton’s coconut drum beats, and Jon Leidecker’s otherworldly synth lines and textures.

In 2023, Thurston released two singles: the energetic Isadora Duncan-inspired “Isadora” with a music video starring Sky Ferreira and “Hypnogram,” which the press called “one of the most intensely cerebral cuts Moore has ever released, he blends the more melodic moments of his former band with the layered, heady flourishes of his bassist Deb Googe’s main band, My Bloody Valentine. Emphatically conveying the feeling of dreams, the new material has fans excited for what the American has in store with his next album.”

Thurston Moore has recently returned home to London from North America, where he played a duo with Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones at Knoxville’s Big Ears Festival. Thurston has confirmed only a select number of appearances in 2024, including reading engagements and a carefully curated selection of live concerts with his group currently comprised of Alex Ward on guitars & clarinet, Deb Googe on bass, Jon Leidecker (aka ‘Wobbly’) on electronics and Jem Doulton on drums.

Thurston records and performs in a cavalcade of disciplines ranging from free improvisation to acoustic composition to black/white metal/noise disruption. He has worked with Phill Niblock, John Paul Jones, Yoko Ono, John Zorn, Bobby Gillespie, David Toop, Cecil Taylor, Faust, Glenn Branca and many others. His residency at the Louvre in Paris included collaborations with Irmin Schmidt of CAN. Alongside his various activities in the musical world, he is involved with publishing and poetry, and teaches writing at The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at Naropa University, Boulder CO, a programme founded by Allen Ginsberg and Anne Waldman in 1974. Thurston also teaches music at The Rhythmic Music Conservatory (Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium) in Copenhagen.
