The song features on the album ‘Sukierae’, a collaboration with Tweedy’s son Spencer who drums on the release. The video sees the pair acting as door to door salesmen, trying to shift copies of the album on the streets of their native Chicago.
“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,” said Tweedy about the project. “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.”
‘Sukierae’ was released earlier this month and is made up of 20 tracks. Wilco released their latest album ‘The Whole Love’ in 2011. It followed their 2009 self-titled release.
