Rock-Legende Bob Mould (Hüsker Dü, Sugar) teilt heute mit "Forecast Of Rain" einen weiteren Song mit Video aus seinem neuen Album. "Blue Hearts“ - das vierzehnte Studio-Album des Musikers - erscheint am 25. September 2020 via Merge Records. Der Clip zum Song spielt in mehreren absurden Collagen auf Geschichten der Bibel an. "Forecast Of Rain" folgt auf die provokative erste Single "American Crisis“. Das Album "Blue Hearts" erscheint am 25. September 2020 bei Merge Records!
Bob Mould erläutert die Hintergründe von "Forecast Of Rain": "As a child, my mother took me to Sunday Mass. I’ve written many songs around religion. In the 2000s, I went back to the Catholic Church for three years – but I did not find my place. I recognize the importance of religion for those who believe: the worship, the rituals, the community; loving thy neighbor, following commandments, doing unto others as you would have them do unto you. In short, be nice to people, help however you can, and don’t steal stuff. But right now, I’m having a hard time understanding how certain religious sectarians can support the behavior of those who occupy the People’s House. How can you endorse their disregard for truth? How can you tolerate the incessant vindictiveness? How can you stand by your man while people are teargassed to clear a path to the Lord’s House? I’m not good at quoting scripture, but I can manage two words: Jesus wept.”
