Proceeds will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center
Wilco have released a new song, “All Lives, You Say?”.
The songs is available for immediate download from their Bandcamp page with a charitable contribution. Proceeds will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, in the memory of Jeff Tweedy’s father, Robert L. Tweedy, who died earlier this month.
“My dad was named after a Civil War general, and he voted for Barack Obama twice,” says Tweedy. “He used to say ‘If you know better, you can do better.’ America – we know better. We can do better.”
The track arrives three days after the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
