Low unveil new track produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy – listen

Titled 'Plastic Cup', this is the first taster from the band's new album 'The Invisible Light'

Low have unveiled a brand new track called ‘Plastic Cup’ – scroll down and click ‘play’ to have a listen.

‘Plastic Cup’ is the first taster from the band’s tenth album ‘The Invisible Light’, which has been produced by Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy. The band recorded the album earlier this year at the Loft, Wilco’s famous recording studio in Chicago.

Last month (November 2012), Low announced that ‘The Invisible Way’ will be released on Sub Pop on March 18 2013 – the year they celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band.


Discussing the band’s decision to work with Tweedy at the Loft, Low singer-guitarist Alan Sparhawk said: “[Wilco] had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day… What really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on – big, simple, raw and intimate. Plans were made then and there.”

Low will support the album with a UK headline tour next April (2013). The band will kick off their six-date jaunt at Birmingham’s Glee Club on April 24, before playing dates in Manchester, Gateshead, Glasgow, Bristol and finally London’s Barbican Centre.

Low will play:

Birmingham Glee Club (April 24 2013)
Manchester Central Methodist Hall (25)
Gateshead The Sage (26)
Glasgow Classic Grand (27)
Bristol Trinity (29)
London Barbican Centre (30)
