Jeff Tweedy Preps Solo Album Sukierae

Jeff Tweedy of Wilco has been working on “not quiet a solo record” he has titled ‘Sukierae’.

‘Sukierae’ is “not quite a solo record” because Tweedy has recorded it with his 18-year old son Spencer. The album will be released as Tweedy, not Jeff Tweedy.

“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing,” Jeff said. “Solo to me meant that I would do everything – write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.”

Spencer is the drummer for the album. Jeff plays guitars, bass and keyboards and backing vocals are supplied by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the Brooklyn-band Lucius.
 
Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., The Minus Five, The Baseball Project) handles keyboard duties on Sukierae.

Spencer Tweedy is the drummer for Chicago band The Blisters and played drums on the recent Mavis Staples album.

Tweedy ‘Sukierae’ will be released through Warner Music in September.
