Former Replacements frontman (and Singles soundtrack boss) Paul Westerberg shared a previously unreleased song today by way of fan-run website Paul Westerberg.net. "My Road Now" finds St. Westerberg alone with his piano, taking on shades of Randy Newman and adding a thin layer of schmaltz, transforming an otherwise modest recording (enjoy the rough edges on both ends of the tape) and chorus into a shot just below your ribcage.
