We Sing A New Language is the first definitive account of Thurston Moores work across many hundreds of collaborations, solo recordings and guest appearences. His long tenure in Sonic Youth might speak for itself, but in this book Moores friends and colleagues speak revealingly for his other achievements, bringing together a wide variety of creative enterprises whose unifying thread is nothing more or less than Thurston Moores passionate devotion to music. Celebrating everything from Fluxus, through acoustic guitar and black metal to noise and improvisation, his has been a career that defies easy summary but rewards careful exploration...

Spanning 1978 to the present day, Nick Soulsbys book takes the reader inside the creative process, capturing each key shift and development in Moores work from his time with Glenn Brancas seminal guitar orchestras to his wholehearted embrace of free jazz and improvisational music in the mid-nineties.
The polar opposite of the rock star who becomes a calcified monument to what made him famous when young, Thurston Moore has retained the genuine youthfulness of the ever-inquisitive artist.

Keen to experiment, willing to relinquish control and unafraid to take chances, he has allowed himself to remain creative and innovative. Its a unique achievement and one that finds worthy celebration in We Sing A New Language.
