Watch Jeff Tweedy Cover Black Eyed Peas, Wilco’s “Born Alone” Video
“Born Alone,” a vaguely Spoon-sounding track from Wilco’s new album The Whole Love, has a video. It’s a montage of band-related imagery (guitar racks, studio knobs, faces), and it’s nothing too exciting. But still! A good song! Mark Greenberg directs. Watch it below.
Also below, we’ve got something you’re definitely going to want to watch. Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy did a snarked-up solo acoustic cover of the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” at the Chicago venue the Hideout, as part of a book party for former Punk Planet editor and Rahm Emmanuel impostor Dan Sinker. Just going to put this out there: “I Gotta Feeling” is just an amazing song. It’s awesome. Whatever, fine, don’t agree. Fuck you too.
