Wilco announced via their Facebook page that the first release from their new record label, dBpm Records, will be a new single from the band. The 7″ will feature “I Might” and a cover of Nick Lowe’s “I Love My Label”. How fitting!
You’ll be able to purchase the single at the Wilco-curated Solid Sound Festival during June 24 through June 26 in North Adams, Massachusetts. Wilco will be headlining the first two dates of the festival. It will then be available for purchase everywhere in July.
No dates have been announced for the band’s follow up to 2009′s Wilco (The Album), but as Spin reports, the band has already laid down twenty tracks. Frontman Jeff Tweedy says, “I do think it’s a little bit more obnoxious and irreverent of a pop record than people have heard from us, maybe, ever. And that’s exciting. But I have no doubt that the second this record becomes available there’s somebody sitting in a basement at their computer with the word ‘meh’ already typed up, waiting to post a review.”
We’ll keep you updated as more details arise.
