Dinosaur Jr. ready brand new album

But is it a one off?

The original line-up of Dinosaur Jr are to release their first album of new material since 1989.

However, bassist Lou Barlow, formerly of Sebadoh and The Folk Implosion, believes it will be a one off.

Recorded at guitarist J Mascis’ home studio in Amherst, Massachusetts, the currently untitled album is due for a spring 2007 release.

Speaking to Billboard, Barlow said: “We spent the better part of two years touring together, so we might as well make a record together.

“We probably won’t do anything else, but then again, we’ll see.”

Tracks mooted for the new album include ‘By The Fire’, ‘This Is All I Came To Do’, ‘Back To Your Heart’ and ‘Stop’.

The reformed group are also set to release a live DVD on May 8 2007, consisting of material from the band’s reunion shows.
