Wilco has just released their 11th album Ode to Joy on Spotify and Apple Music.
“The record is, in a weird way, an ode,” frontman Jeff Tweedy explains of the album in a statement. “This terrible stuff is happening, this deepening sense of creeping authoritarianism that weighs on everybody’s psyche on a daily basis, and you’re allowed to feel a lot of things at once. And one thing that is worth feeling, that is worth fighting for, is your freedom to still have joy, even though things are going to s***.”
Ode To Joy is a follow-up to Wilco’s 2016 album Schmilco.
