What's Next to the Moon is a solo album by Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters), originally released on January 10, 2001. The album is composed entirely of drastically rearranged acoustic covers of Bon Scott-era AC/DC songs. The album follows the release of his debut solo EP Rock 'n' Roll Singer, which also features three AC/DC covers: "Rock 'n' Roll Singer," "You Ain't Got a Hold on Me," and "Bad Boy Boogie." The versions of "Rock 'n' Roll Singer" and "Bad Boy Boogie" on this album are different from the versions on the EP.
"Essential Kozelek Albums"
"Nothing about the originals sounds like they’d work in this forlorn, acoustic setting, but it’s an intriguing experiment that’s both respectful to the source material yet slyly irreverent: He knows he’s not locating new meaning, but amplifying the loneliness and yearning in the Aussie band’s hedonistic rock." - Pitchfork
