Tweedy chats with EW's Matt Bean about making, naming their new album

In a couple of weeks, soul legend Mavis Staples will drop her second Jeff Tweedy-assisted album, One True Vine. But you don’t have to wait until then to get in on the goodness — we’ve got their official video for album track “I Like the Things About Me” ready to be watched exclusively here.

The black-and-white clip centers around shots of  Staples, Tweedy, and Tweedy’s 17-year-old son Spencer (plus a couple other cool-looking cats) making their sweet music together at the Wilco Loft in Chicago, the city where both stars call home. Making the video even groovier is the fact that the song itself is a great jam.

Take Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, add a guitar c/o of Jeff Tweedy, add one cat pun and some sunshine; shake well. Pour it out and you have “Chairman Meow,” one of 11 tracks from the duo’s upcoming fourth album, Wassaic Way (out Aug. 6), produced by Wilco’s Tweedy and Patrick Sansone. The song name-checks L.A. neighborhoods like Hancock Park, Miracle Mile, and Koreatown while paying ah-oooh tribute to the titular cat owner.

It is maybe almost too delightful. Stream it exclusively below.
