Last night Wilco released a new album entitled Star Wars, featuring 11 new original songs. Consider it a gift from Wilco, or as Jeff calls it, “a jolt of joy: a fun surprise.”
It’s available to you now as a free download (for a limited time) on Wilcoworld, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play and streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and Rdio. Digital downloads remain free until August 13.
Prefer vinyl or CD? No problem. Pre-order now in the Wilco store. CD release date is August 21. Vinyl a little later, on October 13. Weekly pre-order contest drawings begin July 30 and include handwritten lyrics to Star Wars by Jeff Tweedy, tickets to any 2015 headlining show, an undeveloped disposable camera from Wilco and a signed test pressing of Star Wars. Pre-orders are also available in the European store.
