New Wilco Album set for June Release

Any of you who  knows me, knows I love the band Wilco. So I was excited to see this posting about the new album from Rolling Stone.
“The new Wilco album will be released in June. In a blast of creativity, most of the basic tracks were recorded in January, in New Zealand. The majority of the band — Jeff Tweedy, bassist John Stirratt, multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone and drummer Glenn Kotche — traveled down there in December to play on tracks for an upcoming Neil Finn album that will benefit Oxfam. They got a great vibe from Finn’s studio in Auckland, so they stuck around and nailed the tracks. Producer/engineer/mixer Jim Scott is at the helm. He’s worked with everyone under the sun, and Wilco fans know him as the mixing engineer on Summerteeth, Sky Blue Sky and Being There. Master guitarist Nels Cline, and keyboard wiz Mikael Jorgensen added overdubs at the Loft.
Finally, let’s just say the record is sick! The songs we heard at the Loft take Wilco in yet another new direction. Great melodies, great lyrics, great playing and great sounds. You’re gonna dig it!
Note: I am going to see Jeff Tweedy solo at a benefit concert at the end of the month. Stay tuned for more details…
