The Replacements release new track “Poke Me In My Cage”

Replacements 2013

The Replacements have released a new song!

Though it may not be quite what you were expecting from the newly reformed band.

“Poke Me In My Cage” appeared on SoundCloud last week with very little fanfare, and is a 24 minute jazz improv jam written by ‘Mats main men Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson. It was recorded at Wooly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, Massachusetts.

The track went live on the 17th of December on what would have been Replacements founder and lead guitarist Bob Stinson’s 55th birthday, though whether the song is intended as a tribute has not been confirmed. Stinson died in 1995.

Westerberg has been teasing a new album from The Replacements in recent weeks, telling Rolling Stone that he already has a few tracks written that could be used on a new LP.
