Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy has shared the first song from his first album as a solo artist. Stream the audio to "I'll Sing It" above, via Tweedy's record label, dBpm.
The song is a trippy tune, sounding like some of the more experimental Wilco material. Pounding drums, groovy bass, and forceful guitars go in and out as the song drifts from straight ahead rock to heady psychedelia.
While it's being called a "solo" record, his 18-year-old son Spencer is on drums and they will be touring with a backing band including Darin Grey, Jim Elkington and Liam Cunningham beginning on June 5. Paste Magazine posted a quote from Tweedy with his thoughts on the record:
When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing... Solo to me meant that I would do everything – write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.
The album, titled Sukierae, is expected for release on September 16. Currently, there is no pre-order information available. You can find more information about tour dates at Wilco's official website.
