About this item
The Chicago (US) band Wilco presents Star Wars, the Grammy-award winning band’s ninth studio album and its first since 2011’s The Whole Love.
Wilco has been a pioneer of pre-releasing albums and making its music available for free since 2001 when the band streamed its breakthrough release Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. The decision to make Star Wars available quickly and for free continues to see the band exploring new ways to release its music and reach its fans, while keeping the album release process fun and interesting to its members.
"Why release an album this way and why make it free? Well, the biggest reason, and I'm not sure we even need any others, is that it felt like it would be fun,” Tweedy said. “What's more fun than a surprise? Enough of this 20th anniversary already, here's something fresh.”
The new album was recorded at the band’s Chicago loft and features 11 original Wilco-penned tunes.
“Star Wars sounds like a band having an absolute blast with both the pop music form and the ways in which we hear it.” (4/5 – THE GUARDIAN)
