Tommy Stinson readies flood of new tunes, starting with ‘Can’t Be Bothered’

August 19, 2015

After nearly two years playing with the reunited Replacements, Tommy Stinson is returning to his solo career with a series of new releases and tour dates, starting with a charity single recorded in London.

All proceeds from Stinson's new single "Can't Be Bothered" will be donated to the Roundhouse Trust: a fund providing creative opportunities for young people at London's Roundhouse, where the 'Mats played two shows last month and where the song was recorded with guitarist Davey Lane (of Replacements openers You am I) and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars). Dickinson's father Jim Dickinson produced the Replacements' album Pleased to Meet Me in 1987.

Meanwhile, Stinson and his band have some upcoming tour dates—including the Turf Club on Sept. 12.
