Lou Barlow
Goodnight Unknown
(Merge)
Releasing: 6 October (US)


Lou Barlow (of Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) will be releasing his new solo album, Goodnight Unknown, on October 6, and to commemorate the occasion, Merge Records released this documentary on the making of the record. It’s 30 minutes of pretty rare insight into the man’s creative process, at times brooding, manic, obnoxious, euphoric—regardless of the outcome, his personal investment is indisputable. Shorter behind-the-scenes installments will be up in the coming weeks.


Barlow will be touring with Dinosaur Jr. this fall and performing an opening set of his solo material, backed by Mike Watt-backers the Missingmen. Tour dates after the jump.


SONG LIST
01 Sharing
02 Goodnight Unknown
03 Too Much Freedom
04 Faith in Your Heartbeat
05 The One I Call
06 The Right
07 Gravitate
08 I’m Thinking…
09 One Machine, One Long Fight
10 Praise
11 Take Advantage
12 Modesty
13 Don’t Apologize
14 One Note Tone
