A few weeks ago, Wilco announced that its 12th studio album, Cruel Country, will be released later this month. Today, the band shared a second song from the project, “Tired of Taking It Out on You,” the lyrics of which focus on self-introspection.

In a statement, frontman Jeff Tweedy elaborated:

“I’ve realized over the years that a lot of the songs I’ve written have worked as reminders to myself to pay attention to various things. Sometimes I think I’ve figured out how the world works in some small way, and I worry I’ll forget it if I don’t sing it back to myself occasionally. This song, I believe, is going to come in handy for just that purpose. I’m a person who needs to stay alert to how I’m treating others when I’m not feeling my best. And now that I mention it, when I look around, it seems like a lot of us have been taking things out on each other when we would be better served striving for understanding and empathy. I’m just trying to be honest with myself, and I guess I’m hoping if this song can help me focus on that, maybe someone else could find it useful in the same way.”

 

Wilco also announced that its performances during its upcoming Solid Sound Festival will be live-streamed, as well as a host of new shows for its previously announced North American tour.
