Bob Mould has been making music for more than 40 years. His career started when he played in the punk band, Hüsker Dü, which was prominent in the 80s. Mould is now out with his 14th solo record, 'Blue Hearts.'
Mould discusses some prominent themes from the new album, as well as parallels he sees in politics of the 80s and today, and the importance of music as protest. He also talks about the role of musicians to use their platforms to speak out on issues like climate change. In the song "Next Generation," he urges listeners to actively engage with politics and their communities with the lyrics, "Please pay attention, take to the streets for your rights."
