The Skinny: “Watch The Corners,” the first single from Dinosaur Jr.’s upcoming album I Bet On Sky, premiered online today. The new single starts out with chugging riffs that ease into Mascis’ vocals, and properly closes with a shredding solo. Wedged in the middle of the tune is an atypical breakdown with a brief flash of acoustic guitar. “I always liked that since I was a kid, from like, Black Sabbath,” Mascis says. “Suddenly they go into acoustic, back into electric – I guess I’ve always been into that.”

I Bet On Sky, their first since the 2009 album Farm, will be released in North America by Jagjaguwar on September 18th, 2012 and in the UK and Europe by PIAS on September 17th. Summer festival appearances and Fall North American tour dates with Shearwater are scheduled.
