New album from Wilco
Wilco release their eighth studio album - The Whole Love - on 26th September 2011 through their newly launched dBpm Records. It follows the band’s 2009 Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album) and was recorded at the band’s Chicago recording studio The Loft. The Whole Love features 12 new original tunes and is produced by Jeff Tweedy with Patrick Sansone and Tom Schick.
The Whole Love is a veritable sonic stew, showcasing Wilco’s far-reaching musical prowess (multiple guitars, keyboards, synthesizers and percussion plus Mellotron, strings, loops and more) perfectly accompanying Jeff Tweedy’s provocative and insightful lyrics. The album opens with the seven-minute ‘Art of Almost’ and concludes with the twelve-minute ‘One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley’s Boyfriend)’. In between: 10 adventurous tunes (each clocking in at four minutes or less) including the current single, ‘I Might’ which was released this past weekend at the band’s Solid Sound Festival. The single is currently streaming at http://www.wilcoworld.net.
The Whole Love tracklisting: Art of Almost, I Might, Sunloathe, Dawned On Me, Black Moon, Born Alone, Open Mind, Capitol City, Standing O, Rising Red Lung, Whole Love, One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley’s Boyfriend).
