Jeff Tweedy announces new LP 'Warm'
Jeff Tweedy 'Warm'

Jeff Tweedy will release his new solo album on November 30th via dBpm Records. WARM was produced and recorded entirely by Jeff at Chicago’s now legendary studio, The Loft (with help from some of his usual collaborators – Spencer Tweedy, Glenn Kotche and Tom Schick).

Along with album announcement, Tweedy has released the lead single, “Some Birds,” and it’s video. The clip was directed by Seth Henrikson. “When I got the call to collaborate with Jeff on the video for ‘Some Birds’ it was a thrill and an honor,” comments Henrikson. “The concept for the video naturally highlights Jeff’s amazing song writing and lyrical genius. However, it also exploits another of Jeff’s gifts — his uncanny sense of men’s fashion and hairstyles. I’m excited to share it with Tweedy fans!”

Jeff Tweedy on Warm:

“like a lot of songs on WARM, being a confrontation between self and shadow self simultaneously feeling I’m to blame and not to blame, present and gone, and utterly confused, but determined to hold someone accountable.”

Jeff is currently on a solo tour of North America (tickets are available at wilcoworld.net). His long-awaited memoir, LET’S GO (SO WE CAN GET BACK): A Memoir of Recording and Discording with Wilco, Etc., is out November 13th via Dutton and available for pre-order now. In LET’S GO (SO WE CAN GET BACK), Jeff writes candidly and compellingly about his past, his songs, and the people who have inspired him. It’s a portrait of an artist in his most reflective and creative state.

– George Saunders, Liner Notes for Jeff Tweedy’s WARM

“Certain lyrical flowers sprout up with regularity across the ten song-yards that are this record.
A son who has lost a father sings to his wife, his sons, that father. There are apologies,
and mirror-twins; threats to enemies (‘I’d love to take you down / and leave you there’) and entreaties
(‘Let’s go rain again!’) and dreamy challenges (‘I wonder how much freedom we can dream’) and ornery morphings of language that serve a simple function: they make the listener love language again.”
