If you have internet access and are a music fan you have probably already heard that the new Wilco album will be titled “Sky Blue Sky“. The announcement from Jeff last week was confirmed and a couple news sites made it more official. Its the first album for the band since 2004 and I know I and many others are eagerly awaiting the new disc. Its due out in the UK on May 14 and in the US the following day.
The rumors are flying as to whether or not any of the new songs that the band has been playing live will be on the disc. Tunes like Impossible Germany, The Thanks I Get and Walken will hopefully make the cut, as they are really sounding great in the live set. This is also the first studio album with the current 6 members contributing, which Ive gone on record as saying is the best lineup in the band ever.
Also, in case you missed it, The Autumn Defense, which features Wilco guitarist John Stirrat and multi instrumentalist Pat Sansome released a brand new full length last week also. Its the follow up to the excellent 2003 album, Circles and should be a must have for Wilco die hards. The self titled record is available now from Broadmoor Records.
