Wilco Announce New Album ‘Cruel Country’, Release New Song ‘Falling Apart (Right Now)’

    Wilco have announced a new album: Cruel Country is slated for release on May 27 via dBpm. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘Falling Apart (Right Now)’, which you can check out below.

    The follow-up to 2019’s Ode to Joy spans 21 tracks and is mostly comprised of live takes tracked at the Loft in Chicago – the first time the band has recorded live together in the same room since 2007’s Sky Blue Sky. “There have been elements of Country music in everything we’ve ever done,” Jeff Tweedy said in a statement. “We’ve never been particularly comfortable with accepting that definition, the idea that I was making country music. But now, having been around the block a few times, we’re finding it exhilarating to free ourselves within the form, and embrace the simple limitation of calling the music we’re making Country.”

    Wilco recently announced multiple deluxe reissue versions of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot to mark its 20th anniversary.
