Jeff Tweedy's next non-Wilco project: Solo album and tour with son
Jeff Tweedy is going the solo route for a minute, and is taking his son Spencer along for the ride.
"Sukierae" will be out Sept. 16 under the name TWEEDY, with his 18-year-old offspring behind the drums. "I'll Sing It" is the first track to arrive from the 20-song album.
"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,” Tweedy said in a press release. "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."
The Tweedys will be on the road with the tunes throughout the summer.
