Art of the Cover - Tweedy's "Sukierae" (2014)






Seems Jeff's hit the family album for the cover shot to this collection.

Yap, Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his teen son Spencer are about to release a new album together.

The music is appropriately enough credited to a band called simply Tweedy

The double-album is called Sukierae  and it drops September 23

Sukierae was completed mostly by just Tweedy Snr and Tweedy Jr, but also features additional vocals by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the band Lucius, as well as keyboards by Scott McCaughey.

Recorded at The Loft in Chicago, Sukierae includes a full 20 new Jeff Tweedy-penned songs.






After producing albums for Low, White Denim, and Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy set out to create a solo album. From the start, the album was intended to be more than simply acoustic guitar and vocals. 

While recording demos, Tweedy's son Spencer joined him to record drums and "help the songs take shape". Tweedy had most previously worked with his son when they both appeared on the split single for the "Songs For Slim" series in 2013.

The album will be released through DBpm Records, a record label founded by the members of Wilco in 2011. This is the third album release by the label, following The Whole Love and its corresponding deluxe edition release
