Wilco appeared on tonight’s edition of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert as the musical guests, of course, remotely.
But before the band’s performance aired, a clip of Jeff Tweedy performing a solo version of “Jesus Etc” was shared on the show’s YouTube page. Wilco performed a new song from quarantine, “Tell Your Friends,” which is about life in lockdown and the positivity that will come after.
Wilco is supposed to hit the road with Sleater-Kinney this summer (in August more specifically), but like everything else right now, it seems extremely unlikely that will happen.
Wilco’s latest album, Ode to Joy, was released last October. The band appeared on The Late Show in conjunction with the release.
