Thurston Moore has written a song which pays homage to the "libertarian and communitarian activists" of his current neighbourhood, Stoke Newington in north London.

'Detonation' is set for a seven-inch release via Blank Editions as part of a limited, hand-numbered edition of 500 in February. The release is part of Blank Editions' Solo Series and will be backed with the song 'Germs Burn'. For more information on the release, visit: blankeditions.tumblr.com. Listen to the track via Pitchfork.

Moore will play an instore gig at Flashback Records in Islington, London on February 7 to celebrate the single's release.

Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore's black metal band Twilight recently announced their new album and decision to split up. Moore joined Twilight in 2012 and 'III: Beneath Trident’s Tomb', due for release on March 17, will be his first album with the band. However, it will also be his last after the group announced their decision to separate immediately.

Meanwhile, it was confirmed earlier this year that Thurston Moore and John Cale will appear at Liverpool Sound City 2014 as keynote speakers. The event, which takes place from May 1-2 at the Liverpool Hilton Hotel and Liverpool ONE will see Cale - formerly of The Velvet Underground - and Moore joined by a third keynote speaker, former Chief Executive of the Premier League and former CEO of Liverpool Football Club, Rick Parry.
