Jeff Tweedy is writing a memoir.
He has been commissioned to write the book by Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Random House. A title and release date are yet to be confirmed.
Tweedy’s book will deal with his own stories and stories of his various musical collaborations, as well as his thoughts on the music industry and how Wilco fit into it. Associated Press reports Tweedy as saying:
“I have stories to tell, and I’d like for this book to be a combination of those stories about my experiences, and maybe a window into one person’s creative process, as well as some of what I’ve seen working with other artists in my current and former bands, in the studio, on the road, in my basement with my sons and more.”
Meanwhile, Wilco have a European tour planned for next year, including a couple of UK and Ireland dates. They will play:
Iveagh Garden, Dublin (July 10)
Albert Hall, Manchester (November 18)
O2 Academy, Brixton, London (November 19)
