Surprise! Wilco announced on Facebook today that they have a new album called “Star Wars”, and it is available for free download on the band’s website.
“Why release an album this way and why make it free?” Wilco’s lead singer and guitarist Jeff Tweedy asks. “Well, the biggest reason, and I’m not sure we even need any others, is that it felt like it would be fun. What’s more fun than a surprise?”
This is the band’s ninth studio album and its first since 2011’s “The Whole Love.” In the meantime, Jeff Tweedy and his son have been working on their duo group ‘Tweedy,’ which debuted its studio album “Sukierae” in September.
“Star Wars” and its eleven original tracks are available for download at wilcoworld.net.
