The last we heard from Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy he was reuniting a fictional band called Land Ho! on Parks and Recreation. Now, the singer/songwriter is going solo, well, sort of. Tweedy has announced that he's formed a new band with his 18-year-old Spencer, who's a drummer, appropriately called Tweedy. R.E.M. collaborator Scott McCaughey contributes on keyboard, and members of Lucius appear to sing backup vocals. Tweedy had this to say regarding the new band:
“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. 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."
That's a pretty awesome father-son relationship they have. Tweedy's debut album, Sukierae, will be out September 16 via Wilco's label dBpm. In the meanwhile, check out "I'll Sing It" below:
