Drew Fortune, interviewing Paul Westerberg for Spin:

My next question follows naturally. “Do you wish you were more popular?” Paul pauses in consideration. “No,” he says definitively. “I say that and I’m still a human being. The I Don’t Cares record charted at No. 150 and the next day it dropped. I’m trying to be cool and think it doesn’t matter. Then I spend the day kicking s//t. Any time I put something out I’m afraid and I want people to like it. This record was not meant to sell.”

The interview (which was originally planned to include Juliana and drummer Josh Freese) confirms what has been hinted at in Instagram posts and Westerberg's site - The I Don't Cares are working on new music beyond the recent Wild Stab album.
