Frontman Jeff Tweedy recently spoke to SPIN.com about Wilco (The Album), and how his lyrics have changed on its songs. “There are definitely more tracks on this record that aren’t directly from my experience. There’s a song written from the point of view of a guy who just killed his girlfriend,” Tweedy says of “Bull Black Nova,” a track that captures its protagonist’s edginess in jittering electric guitar and piano.
