Jeff Tweedy Reveals New Band Name, New Song "I'll Sing It" (Audio)

Jeff Tweedy is set to embark on a highly anticipated tour this summer, but not with Wilco or his tried-and-true solo acoustic format.  He'll tour with a newly formed band -- now called TWEEDY -- behind the forthcoming album Sukierae (sue-key-ray), to be released on September 16th.

 “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,” Jeff said. “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."

Here's the first song from released from that album.

Jeff plays guitar, bass and electric sitar while Spencer mans the drums.  Backing vocals on this track are provided by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius.
