dBpm Records (AKA Wilco: The Label) officially launched earlier this year, and now we’re getting some details about its debut Wilco release. New single “I Might” will be released on limited edition vinyl, with a cover of Nick Lowe’s “I Love My Label” on the b-side. It’ll be available at the band’s Solid Sound Fest later this month (more on that in a minute), and to the rest of the world 7/18. Pre-order at roughtrade.com is now live (H/T 24Bit). You can also order it with turntable adapters and other dBpm swag here. LP8 (working title Get Well Soon Everybody) will follow in September. Last month Jeff Tweedy previewed some of the other tracks for Rolling Stone:
The album includes a seven-minute track, “Art of Almost,” which starts with shadowy electronics, gently turns into a haunted vocal section, then sprints into a Krautrock-style blowout. There are also two country-flavored songs, the spectral ballad “Black Moon” and the jauntier “Whole Love.” “There are two strong threads of material,” Tweedy says, “one being a little weirder – snot-nosed obnoxious pop songs – and the other more languid, atmospheric-country music.”
You should keep an ear out of these new tunes at the aforementioned second annual Cool Dad Festival Solid Sound Festival, a 3-day Music & Arts Fest celebrating all things Wilco and Wilco-approved. It comes to MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA 6/24-6/26.. Tickets are available at solidsoundfestival.com. Peek the lineup below.
