Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy has announced the Sept. 16 release of “Sukierae,” an album collaboration with his drummer son Spencer Tweedy. The group calls itself Tweedy.
He has also shared “I’ll Sing It,” the album’s first single.
“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,” Tweedy told American Songwriter Magazine. “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.”
