Bob Mould has released a video for his new single Siberian Butterfly, taken from his forthcoming album Blue Hearts.
“The genesis of Siberian Butterfly spoke to the notion of “collectors” — people with excessive means who gather the works of creative folk for their ego-driven portfolios” he explains.
“As I kept writing, the narrative shifted toward themes of change, growth, and freedom. These motifs are central to how we become our true selves. This is how we begin our journey toward our true identities.
“It’s autobiographical as well. I put myself through some self-hating years as a young gay man — never feeling “good enough”, not recognising the positive qualities I had to offer, while inhibiting the development of my gay identity.
“I hope for a world where all people can be what they want to be. Life seems shorter every day; maybe this simple song can be of use to people who are struggling to find their true selves.”
Blue Hearts is due for release on 25th September 2020 via Merge Records, available to pre-order HERE.
