Bob Mould has a new album scheduled for releases on Feb. 8, 2019 titled Sunshine Rock. Coming out on Merge Records, the record is inspired by Mould's experiences in Berlin, Germany.

"Almost four years ago, I made plans for an extended break," Mould says. "I started spending time in Berlin in 2015, found an apartment in 2016, and became a resident in 2017. My time in Berlin has been a life changing experience."

"To go from [2011 autobiography] See a Little Light to the last three albums, two of which were informed by loss of each parent, respectively, at some point I had to put a Post-It note on my work station and say, 'Try to think about good things.' Otherwise I could really go down a long, dark hole," he says. "I'm trying to keep things brighter these days as a way to stay alive."

The former Husker Du and Sugar member last released Patch The Sky in 2016. He will embark on a US tour that kicks off on Valentine's Day 2014 with support from Titus Andronicus, Screaming Females, and others.
