Wilco recently released their 13th studio album ‘Cousin’, led by the first single ‘Evicted’. The record, which was produced by Cate Le Bon, was released on September 29 on dBpm Records.
‘Cousin’ marks the first time Wilco have handed the reins over to a producer outside their immediate circle of collaborators since 2007’s ‘Sky Blue Sky’.
“The amazing thing about Wilco is they can be anything,” Le Bon said of the band. “They’re so mercurial, and there’s this thread of authenticity that flows through everything they do, whatever the genre, whatever the feel of the record. There aren’t many bands who are able to, this deep into a successful career, successfully change things up.”
Meanwhile earlier this year, Yo La Tengo brought out Wilco for the encore of their show at Metro in Chicago, running through the Beatles‘ ‘She’s A Woman’, Bob Dylan‘s ‘Love Minus Zero/No Limit’, the Heartbreakers’ ‘One Track Mind’ and Fairport Convention’s ‘Who Knows Where The Time Goes?’
