LISTEN: Wilco's New Song 'Somebody to Lose'
Jeff Tweedy and Wilco anticipating new album ‘Schmilco’ out September 9, with a new song.
‘Somebody to Lose’ is the band's third sampling of ‘Schmilco’, following the country-tinged ‘If I Ever Was a Child’ and bass-heavy, noise-pop excursion ‘Locator’. The 12-track album, out September 9th via dBpm, focuses on acoustic arrangements, with lyrics that explore self-identity and public perceptions of the group.
‘Schmilco’ follows the sextet's surprise 2015 LP, ‘Star Wars’, which the band initially released as a free download.
"I think this record is 'joyously negative'”, Tweedy said of the album. "It's sad in a lot of ways but not in any that reach a conclusion of doom or hopelessness. I just had a lot of fun being sour about the things that upset me".
