Wilco Plan Fall Album Release
Frontman Jeff Tweedy told RollingStone.com that the album is in the mixing stages and that the band recorded more than 20 songs, "out of the things I had coming in, which was somewhere in the fifties and sixties. It's a pretty great time for me writing-wise."
Tweedy said that a lengthy touring hiatus helped his focus as a songwriter. "We took a little more time off the road than we normally do," Tweedy said. "Certainly, it's been the longest break I've had since my twenties, and that's been a big help, wading out that far from the comfort of the old songs. You have to keep your mind sharp to play your old songs. It's hard to allow yourself to freely think about what you want to do next, when you're that close to doing another show." more on this story
