We are proud to announce that the next issue of Uncut – in UK shops on Thursday (September 19) but available to pre-order online by clicking here – comes with one of the best free, covermounted CDs we’ve ever given away.

To reiterate – because we’re still amazed about this ourselves – all except one of these Wilco covers were recorded specifically for Uncut’s free CD and are currently unavailable anywhere else. So here’s that pre-order link again.
The new issue of Uncut also contains an in-depth interview with Wilco, whose world tour continues in Cologne this evening (September 13) and arrives in the UK later this month for shows in Glasgow, Manchester, and London (full details here).
The October 2019 issue of Uncut is on sale from August 15, and available to order online now – with Patti Smith on the cover. Inside, you’ll find Bon Iver, Robbie Robertson, Jeff Buckley, Miles Davis, Brittany Howard, The Hollies, Devendra Banhart, Neil Young and Bob Dylan and more. Our 15-track CD also showcases the best of the month’s new music, including Wilco, Oh Sees, Hiss Golden Messenger and Tinariwen.
