Sonic Youth’s new record The Eternal releases 9 June in North America and a day earlier in the UK. There’s now an MP3 from the album available that Matador Records describes in the following manner: ““Sacred Trickster” is a 2:10 out-of-the gate hardcore matinee track with Kim singing salutes to French painter Yves Klein and Western Massachusetts noise artist Noise Nomads. It sets the tone for The Eternal, which comprises 12 tunes that are a fireworks display of Sonic Youth touchstones.”
