Superchunk‘s new single is available today! “This Summer,” the A-side of this limited-edition seven-inch, is the first new Superchunk single since the 2010 release of their widely acclaimed album Majesty Shredding. The B-side features the band’s own take on Bananarama’s ’80s hit “Cruel Summer.” As a bonus, the physical single will include a digital download code for an acoustic version of “This Summer.”
To celebrate release day, Mac will perform a solo set tonight at Origami in Los Angeles at 7 p.m.
Produced by Scott Solter with artwork featuring photography by Harrison Haynes (Les Savy Fav), the seven-inch was pressed on hot white vinyl limited to 1300 hand-numbered copies worldwide. “This Summer” b/w “Cruel Summer” is also available digitally now in the Merge store.
