Wilco's Schmilco Out Now

The Chicago band Wilco’s 10th studio album Schmilco is out now. The album, which was revealed in its entirety at independent record store listening parties on Tuesday, is now widely available on all formats and on streaming services.

Schmilco is the Chicago sextet’s follow up to last year’s surprise release, the raucous Star Wars. “Quiter, but not safer” than its 2015 predecessor said The Chicago Tribune, “...as comforting as this album can sometimes sound on the surface, it's also strange and unsettling.”

“It’s sad in a lot of ways, but not in any that reach a conclusion of doom or hopelessness,” said Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. “I just had a lot of fun being sour about the things that upset me.”

Guitarist Nels Cline discusses Wilco as well as his solo career and more on NPR’s Fresh Air with show host Terry Gross. Cline’s Blue Note Records debut Lovers is out now.

Schmilco is produced by Jeff Tweedy and Tom Schick. It was recorded at the band’s Chicago studio The Loft.

Wilco is Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Nels Cline, Glenn Kotche, Patrick Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen.
