Jeff Tweedy Has Written A Book About Songwriting

Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy has written a book about songwriting. ‘ Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back): A Memoir of Recording and Discording With Wilco, Etc.’ will be published in November.

According to publisher Penguin:

The singer, guitarist, and songwriter, best known for this work with Wilco, opens up about his past, his songs, the music, and the people that have inspired him.

Few bands have inspired as much devotion as the Chicago rock band Wilco, and it’s thanks, in large part, to the band’s singer, songwriter, and guiding light: Jeff Tweedy. But while his songs and music have been endlessly discussed and analyzed, Jeff has rarely talked so directly about himself, his life, and his artistic process.

Until now. In his long-awaited memoir, Jeff will tell stories about his childhood in Belleville, Illinois; the St. Louis record store, rock clubs, and live-music circuit that sparked his songwriting and performing career; and the Chicago scene that brought it all together. He’ll also talk in-depth about his collaborators in Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, and more; and write lovingly about his parents, wife Sue, and sons, Spencer and Sam.

Honest, funny, and disarming, Tweedy’s memoir will bring readers inside both his life and his musical process, illuminating his singular genius and sharing his story, voice, and perspective for the first time.

Tweedy will be back with Wilco in 2019. Wilco have been announced already for the Sold Sound Festival in Massachusetts in June 2

They will also be performing a Vitoria-Gasteiz in Spain for the Azkena Rock Festival next June.

Jeff Tweedy solo dates kick of in a few days, 17 August, at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.

Together At Last is the new Jeff Tweedy solo acoustic record featuring 11 intimate recordings of previously released Wilco, Loose Fur and Golden Smog songs.
