NEW YORK — Wilco will begin recording its next album in October, Billboard has learned. The follow-up to 2007’s “Sky Blue Sky” is expected for a spring release via Nonesuch.
After opting for a highly performance-oriented recording approach on “Sky Blue Sky,” frontman Jeff Tweedy said in a recent radio interview that he expects Wilco will “allow ourselves a little bit more leeway in terms of sculpting the sound in the studio and doing overdubs and using the studio as another instrument. Last time around, it was more of a document.”
Wilco will take a break from the studio at the end of the year for nine dates supporting Neil Young, beginning Nov. 29 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and wrapping Dec. 15 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
In related news, Wilco keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen will play Sept. 28 at Brooklyn’s Union Poll with his side band, Pronto.
