Listen to new Jeff Tweedy song, "I'll Sing It"

Jeff Tweedy has released a new song, "I'll Sing It", taken from his forthcoming album, Sukierae.

According to Glide, the album is released on September 16 through Tweedy's own dBpm Records.

Sukierae contains 20 new songs, performed by Tweedy along with his 18-year-old son, drummer Spencer.

“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,” Tweedy said. “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.”

Other musicians on Sukierae are Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the Brooklyn-band Lucius, who provide backing vocals, and keyboard player, Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Young Fresh Fellows and The Minus 5).
