The album, which is the 10th official studio release from the Chicago rock staple, will be debuting at various record stores around the country today, including Rough Trade NYC itself. While it’s not clear if the band is going to be performing, doing a release show, an acoustic set, or just appearing for fun, picking up a copy of the album today will get you in the door for whatever that event may be.
Whatever it turns out to be, it should be a treat: Wilco is one of the best live acts around, and with 10 albums of original material, their vast catalogue makes for a fun set each time. Below, check out Jeff Tweedy and company’s awesome NPR Tiny Desk Concert from a few years ago:
