Wilco have announced details of a new studio album, Cousin, which is released on September 29 on the band’s dBpm label.
You can hear the first track “Evicted” below.
“I’m cousin to the world,” says Jeff Tweedy. “I don’t feel like I’m a blood relation, but maybe I’m a cousin by marriage.”
The band’s first album since Cruel Country, Cousin has been produced by Cate Le Bon. “The amazing thing about Wilco is they can be anything,” Le Bon says. “They’re so mercurial, and there’s this thread of authenticity that flows through everything they do, whatever the genre, whatever the feel of the record. There aren’t many bands who are able to, this deep into a successful career, successfully change things up.”

Tracklisting for the new album is:
When The Levee Is Fake
A Bowl And A Pudding
Meant To Be
