Tweedy starts ” Get Well Soon Everybody” talk.
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy recently spoke to Rolling Stone about the release of Wilco’s eighth studio album. It’s scheduled for September and tentatively titled “Get Well Soon Everybody.”
The band’s currently mixing the record at their Chicago loft. Tweedy claims that the band is working with over 20 songs “out of the things I had coming in, which was somewhere in the fifties and sixties,” Tweedy says. “It’s a pretty great time for me writing-wise.”
Some new tracks include “Art of Almost,” an “electronic Krautrock blowout,” as well as country tracks such as “Black Moon,” and “Whole Love.” Tweedy says that the sessions have created “two strong threads of material, one being a little weirder—snot-nosed obnoxious pop songs—and the other more languid, atmospheric-country music.” Hopefully they decide to go with a combination of the both. Lord knows we need a weirder Wilco album.
When asked about the working title of the album Tweedy replied, “If I could say anything to the world at large, that would be it.”
“Get Well Soon Everybody” will be the first album to be released on the band’s new label dBpm and the first since leaving Nonesuch last summer.
Next month the band will release the single “I Might” on 7-inch during the band’s Solid Sound Festival taking place June 24-26. It will be released to non-festival attendees in July.
