Semisonic's Dan Wilson Releases Live Album, Pens New Weezer Song

08/11/2010
.
Semisonic's Dan Wilson has released a new digital live album and also co-wrote "Ruling Me," a song that will appear on Weezer's forthcoming album, Hurley. Here is the announcement about the live album release:

Live at the Pantages, a 27-track document of singer-songwriter Dan Wilson's concert at his hometown of Minneapolis' legendary Pantages Theater, is available digitally and via www.danwilsonmusic.com.

Spanning the Grammy-winning artist's entire career, this recording contains both solo and full band sets, Wilson's recent collaborations with other musicians, and some of the most beloved songs from his recent solo album Free Life.

Free Life was produced by Rick Rubin, who says of Wilson, "Dan's music touches my soul. He is/has the perfect combination of inspiration and songcraft. He is a timeless artist whose music will feel as good in 50 years as it does today."

Wilson, who is currently writing with Josh Groban for Groban's upcoming album, is in high demand as a songwriter and producer. His song "Ours," co-written and co-produced with The Bravery, is featured in the film Twilight: Eclipse, the third installment of the wildly successful Twilight series, as well as on the film's soundtrack.

Wilson has also written recently with Keith Urban and Jason Mraz. He has co-written songs with Weezer and Adele for their upcoming September releases and has writing and production credits on the newly released Griffin House album. He also co-wrote and co-produced "BOY" with KT Tunstall for the end title of the upcoming U.K. film release, The Kid, and wrote and produced the track "You Take My Troubles Away," which was performed by Rachael Yamagata and appears on the Dear John soundtrack.

In the mid-nineties, Wilson rose to prominence as a founding member of the Minneapolis-based trio Semisonic. In 2006 Wilson co-wrote a number of songs on the Dixie Chick's album Taking the Long Way, which sold over 2 million copies in the U.S. and won the Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards. Wilson is currently recording a solo studio album set to release in 2011.
