Sonic Youth on 'Gossip Girl'


Next Monday (Oct12) veteran rockers Sonic Youth will appear on the primetime soap opera "Gossip Girl."  The band will perform an acoustic version of "Star Power" from the 1986 album EVOL, and the show's characters will be fueding and shopping and whatever else it is that they do.

More importantly, after the acoustic track airs on "Gossip Girl," Sonic Youth plan to release this version of "Star Power" as a single.  The single will be released Tuesday, Oct. 13 and via SY's web site and iTunes. The limited edition version, available on the band's site, includes a hand printed "Star Power" poster featuring a rendition of that creepy child-eating "Pan's Labyrinth" monster. The iTunes version will include the track "Antenna" from The Eternal. 


"Gossip Girl" airs on the CW network Mondays at 9 o'clock.
