“There is and was only one Daniel and to be able to work with him and help present his music was a huge honor for me and the band, one for which we are all very thankful.” – Jeff Tweedy
Daniel Johnston’s final album, Chicago 2017, will be released via Wilco’s dBpm Records on Jan. 31.
During what became his last extended US tour, Daniel performed in several cities with different backing bands. How Chicago performance was with Tweedy (Jeff and Spencer Tweedy, James Elkington, Darin Gray and Liam Kazar).
Chicago 2017 includes new arrangements of 14 beloved songs (plus one Beatles cover), nine performed live at The Vic Theater, and five pulled from the previous day’s session at The Loft.
Profits from this release will be donated to the Johnston family’s “Hi How Are You” Foundation for the study and treatment of mental illness and addiction recovery.
Australia is on our minds.
Jeff Tweedy’s 2019 Brisbane show is now available to purchase in the Wilco Store. All proceeds from sales will be donated to three organizations that are assisting people, animals and firefighters affected by the wildfires.
