Wilco announce release date for new CD, 'The Whole Love'


Wilco will release their new CD, The Whole Love, on September 27. The album will feature a dozen new songs, including the recently released single “I Might,” which you can check out below, and the twelve-minute “One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley’s Boyfriend).”

The Whole Love is Wilco’s eighth studio album and the first to be released on the band’s dBpm Records label. Jeff Tweedy and crew have also announced a string of dates, which kicks off at the Murat Theatre, Indianapolis, IN., on September 13. Legendary singer-songwriter and silver fox Nick Lowe will be the support at all the shows.

Personally, I thought Wilco’s last CD, 2009’s Wilco (The Album), didn’t quite match the sublime, exploratory heights as Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or A Ghost Is Born, although I’m well aware there are fans who hold the contrary view. What are your hopes for The Whole Love?

    While I think Wilco (the album) is largely underrated (it’s almost like a pseudo-greatest hits collection), the band seems to release their best work every even-numbered album (Being There, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, Sky Blue Sky). As The Whole Love is their 8th album, I have heard 3 songs off this album so far and am very optimistic this will continue the trend.

      That’s a good point- those are my three favorite Wilco albums and they’re all even numbered.

    Wilco AND Nick Lowe?! That is awesome!
    While I agree that Wilco (the album) wasn’t their best, I still thought it was a great album, and I’m sure their new one will be great as well.

    I agree that Wilco(the Album) is their weakest effort since A.M. But, I cannot agree that their even numbered albums are superior. Though Being There and YHF may be my personal faves, I believe SBS, AGIB and SummerTeeth are all excellent. Frankly, I think that after the guitar pyrotechnics of SBS, Tweedy decided to just make a simple, pretty album like Wilco(the Album). After previewing the 3 cuts available, I have high hopes for The Whole Love. Regardless, they are (imho) the best live act currently working…and have been for some time!

    Awesome! Now all i need is Fiona Apple to release her new album in 2011 like she said she was going to and I will be happy.

    I think Wilco (the album) is BY FAR their weakest effort — if SBS was Wilco Lite, (the album) was the sonic equivalent of MGD 64 . . . just no substance. (the album) sounds ok, but really fell into a number of boring, soft rock pitfalls with both the arrangements and songwriting. I felt the same way about SBS at first, but that one really grew on me. I think this one will be The Whole Love-ly.
