Wilco is releasing a new album titled Schmilco. The record is due out September 9th via dBpm. Along with the announcement, Wilco has also shared an new song off the upcoming LP, "If I Ever Was a Child." The record was produced by Jeff Tweedy and Tom Schick.
A press release state about the album, "Schmilco finds band leader Tweedy in a state of alienation: how to cope with dissonance between self-identity and the public perception of his band – to maintain an innocence and earnestness even as some have come to see him as more (or less) than human, and Wilco as something other than six musicians?
""I think this record is 'joyously negative'," Tweedy said. "It's sad in a lot of ways but not in any that reach a conclusion of doom or hopelessness… I just had a lot of fun being sour about the things that upset me.""
Last week, Wilco released another track from the record, "The Locator." At that point, everyone assumed it was in celebration of the one year anniversary of their last record, Star Wars. Turns out, the song is on the new album.
