    It was the reunion no one thought would really happen, and then the one we couldn’t believe was still going. Now, it looks like The Replacements may be around for a quite a bit longer. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson revealed that they are indeed considering a new album.

    The article quotes the ‘Mats as saying “they’ll likely make an album at some point in the future,” noting that Westerberg “has plenty of songs in the hopper.” Two track titles were mentioned: “Are You in It for the Money?” and “Dead Guitar Player” (which Westerberg stated was written before guitarist Slim Dunlap suffered a severe stroke in 2012).

    The Replacements last released an album in 1990 with All Shook Down, but released an EP of covers songs in 2013 to kick off their reunion tour.
