The 11-track debut album was partially written by Novoselic and Cameron, while Raye wrote the lyrics, and Jack Endino, who produced 1989’s Nirvana album Bleach, mixed the recording, Billboard reported.

The record, according to music store NME, “sports a wide tonal palette – it leans heavily on classic flavors of grunge and alternative rock, but adds diversity with hints of laid-back folk and indie-rock. , swampy blues and stomping hard rock”. ‘

The group has not publicly announced its lineup or album until its release on Monday. In February, Novoselic took to Twitter with a post that he later deleted that read, “I’m really busy trying to finish a record. But it’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone!!!’
