Get Paul Westerberg’s new album for only 49 cents

By Niki D’Andrea

Paul Westerberg: On the Cheap.

Former Replacements frontman Paul Westerberg is offering fans his new album for only 49 cents. The Minnesota-based rocker has increasingly gravitated toward independent, experimental, basement-based recordings, and his new record, 49:00…Of Your Time/Life, is one long track with no song listings. Westerberg played all the instruments himself, and the sale price stems from a joke Westerberg made to his manager that fans would “pay a penny a minute.” was the only online retailer willing to offer the album for 49 cents.
