Melvins Premiere New Song “1 F**k You”
The Melvins have released “1 Fuck You,” the latest single from their forthcoming Melvins 1983 release, Working with God.
You can listen to the song, described “as an ode to the American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson,” below.
Says Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne of the track:
“Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!”
According to a press release, “[‘1 Fuck You’] is not the only tribute piece across the album, ‘I Fuck Around’ being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot anymore?”
Working With God features the 1983 iteration of the Melvins: Osborne, Dale Crover, and original drummer Mike Dillard. It will be released February 26 via Ipecac Recordings, and can be pre-ordered here, along with vinyl-only reissues of Gluey Porch Treatments (1987) and Hostile Ambient Takeover (2002).
Meanwhile, this weekend will see the premiere of the band’s Valentine’s Day (February 14) live streaming event, dubbed Divine Monkeyshines: Valentine’s Day Special. The event will combine a musical performance with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the band members Osborne, Crover, and Steven McDonald.
Says Osborne of the special:
“Round two of Melvins TV! Just in time for Valentine’s Day! Five different songs plus band interviews and other cool stuff. All this fine entertainment for only $5.”
