See all latest

Paul Westerberg, former frontman of The Replacements (a group as messy as they were influential), quietly let loose a new single over the weekend. "My Road Now"—a catchy, earnest piano ballad full of regret and "adult alternative" flair—marks the first time Westerberg has released new music since 2008's 49:00, a continuous collection of songs and fragments.

There was no indication on Westerberg's personal website at the time of release that "My Road Now" is part of a plan to release anything more substantial.
