Bob Mould Shares “American Crisis,” Returns With 14th Solo LP

Bob Mould has announced the release of his new album. BLUE HEARTS (Merge Records), which arrives on Friday, September 25. The album follows last year’s critically acclaimed SUNSHINE ROCK – is prefaced by today’s provocative first single, “American Crisis,”

“‘American Crisis’ is a tale of two times,” says Mould. “Past Time and Present Time. The parallels between 1984 and 2020 are a bit scary for me: telegenic, charismatic leaders, praised and propped up by extreme Evangelicals, either ignoring an epidemic (HIV/AIDS) or being outright deceitful about a pandemic (COVID-19).” From today through June 7, all of the proceeds from “American Crisis” will benefit OutFront Minnesota and Black Visions Collective.
