Jeff Tweedy has released two new tracks for the Sub Pop Singles Club series, ‘C’mon America’ and ‘UR-60 Unsent’.
‘C’mon America’, the A-side on the seven-inch vinyl release, is a slacker-influenced number plucked “from an unreleased group of songs with mostly sci-fi lyrics”. Meanwhile, ‘UR-60 Unsent’ was described by Sub Pop as “a pitiful tale of an unsent lovesick mixtape, taken from a separate batch of unreleased songs with mostly pitiful lyrics”.
Listen to the two tracks below:
Tweedy released his latest solo album ‘Love is the King’ in 2020, a year after Wilco released their 11th LP, ‘Ode to Joy’. The band are currently celebrating the release of ‘Ode to Joy’ with a US tour, following on from their ‘It’s Time’ co-headline tour with Sleater-Kinney back in August.
Since the release of ‘Love is the King’, Tweedy has performed a number of covers including Japanese Breakfast’s ‘Kokomo, IN’, Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten’s ‘Like I Used To’ and the Ted Lasso theme. He also contributed to the debut album of the Parks and Recreation fictional band Mouse Rat.
