49 minutes of new Paul Westerberg coming tomorrow?!

Here’s some news out of nowhere (thanks Gregg!):

Tomorrow Paul Westerberg will be releasing “49 minutes of music for 49 cents” on his website (yes, that does actually still direct you to an AOL page, don’t hold it against him). I believe this is the first new solo material from the former Replacements frontman since 2006′s Open Season soundtrack. Curious!

LISTEN: Lots of Westerberg/Mats tracks

UPDATE: Buy it here – sounds pretty good!


  • based on the cover art and the text snippet they posted over there it looks like PW may be headed off the deep end

  • It’s not bad, but it’s also not 49:00. It runs 43:55.

  • Is this thing a DRM free MP3?

  • Yes, seems to be… I think Amazon usually are, I’ve never had a problem.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
