Hear new Jeff Tweedy song, "Summer Noon"
Jeff Tweedy has shared a new song from his album Sukierae.
"Summer Noon"- which you can hear below - is a collaboration with the frontman's son Spencer, who drums on the release. The song features on the soundtrack to director Richard Linklater's new film Boyhood.
"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," said Tweedy. "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."
The 20-track Sukierae will be released on September 16 on on Tweedy's own dBpm label. Tweedy is playing songs from the album on a solo North American tour, which finishes up at the Newport Folk Festival later this month. The song "I'll Sing It" is streaming at WilcoWorld.net now. A different song from the album will be streamed every Monday for the next eight weeks.
