The Replacements frontman has a new band – The I Don't Cares


The former lead singer of The Replacements is making music again.

The Minneapolis-based alt-rock group ended things after their “Back by Unpopular Demand” reunion tour earlier this year.

Now, their lead singer and guitarist Paul Westerberg has a new band with Juliana Hatfield called the I Don't Cares, according to the artists' websites.

They've released a new single "1/2 2 P," where the duo gets "playful with the ABCs and it's nothing short of elementary – but that's why it's so fun," Consequence of Sound says. (Listen to the track below, or download it here.)

They're also planning to release an album called "Wild Stab" in the "near future," the Consequence of Sound reports.

This will be the 55-year-old's first full-length album since his 2004 release of the solo record "Folker," City Pages says. While Hatfield, 48, has also enjoyed a solo career following her gig with the Boston-based indie rock band Blake Babies in the late-1980s.

A fun fact about Hatfield and Westerberg: She told Paste last year she had written a fan letter to the singer when she was a teenager.
