This new Jeff Tweedy solo project/family band with his son Spencer continues to pay out. June delivered the gritty “I’ll Sing It” and Monday brought the languid “Summer Noon.” Now the group called Tweedy serve up the gently swaying “Wait for Love” just in time for the weekend, recalling some of Wilco’s earlier simpler songs and reminding us why we first fell for this Chicago songwriter so many years ago. And now, he’s effectively doubled.
“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing,” the elder Tweedy said previously. “Solo to me meant that I would do everything — write the songs, play all the instruments, and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. The record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.”
You can stream the track below or watch Jeff give it a go live in an empty building near some train tracks above. Tweedy’s debut album, Sukierae, will be out September 23.
