Dinosaur Jr. fans will be relieved to hear that the post-rockers have kept bust through quarantine, putting the finishing touches on a new LP dubbed Sweep It Into Space.

As frontman J. Mascius assures, the album – which is the band’s first since 2016 – was “pretty well finished by the time things really hit the fan” with the pandemic.

They even managed to get a few 2019 sessions in with co-producer and fellow musician Kurt Vile; Vile provided 12-string guitar on the album’s lead single “I Ran Away,” which is out now.
