Jeff Tweedy to Release Sukierae on September 16, Preview First Track

Jeff Tweedy will release Sukierae on September 16 via dBpm Records. The record will serve as the debut release from the Tweedy duo which features the Wilco frontman and his 18-year old son Spencer, who is a longtime member of the Chicago band The Blisters.

“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,” Jeff said per 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.”

Additional personnel on the record include Scott McCaughey of R.E.M. who added keyboards to the album. Tweedy’s tour kicks off June 5 in Detroit, MI with his new band that features son Spencer as well as Darin Grey (bass), Jim Elkington (guitar) and Liam Cunningham (keys). The band will tape an episode of Austin City Limits on June 20 and will also appear on The Tonight Show on July 24.
