Bob Mould has announced that he will be hitting the road of a solo electric tour and has also released his cover of the Buzzcocks' "I Don't Mind."

Mould revealed why he felt inspired to cover the track in an online video (watch it here) , "Early in my sophomore year, two concerts had a major impact on me. The first was at the Longhorn, with Gang of Four opening for the Buzzcocks.

"I was a huge fan of the Buzzcocks' approach to pop songwriting and also appreciated the slashing guitar of Gang of Four. I was front and center for the entire Buzzcocks set, studying singer-guitarist Pete Shelley, watching his every motion.

"Legend has it that the entire band was tripping on LSD that evening - I don't know, but many times during the set, Pete did lean down, off-mic, and shout the chord changes at me. It left a deep impression, and I became an even more intent student of their work." See the tour dates below:
