In addition to the surprise of new music from Paul, there’s also some kind of Replacements news on the way, or so it seems. While the Mats do have social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), posts are few and far between. This was posted on Twitter and Facebook last week:

What could it be? In an article on Paul’s new music in the Star-Tribune, Chris Riemenschneider also mentioned the impending Mats news:
Coincidentally or not, the song was posted just a few days after the Replacements’ Facebook and Twitter accounts suddenly came to life after nearly two years of dormancy. Each account posted a photo of the band circa 1986, with late guitarist Bob Stinson wearing a trenchcoat (and possibly nothing else). It’s likely this is the first warning of news to come on a new — and long overdue — archive live recording series from the band. Two reasons to stay tuned now!
A live recording series would be fantastic, we’ll see what happens!
