New Wilco Album 'The Whole Love' Released September 27

The Chicago rock band Wilco release their eighth studio album - The Whole Love - on September 27 through their newly launched dBpm Records. It follows the band's 2009 Grammy-nominated Wilco (The Album) and was recorded at the band's Chicago recording studio The Loft. The Whole Love features 12 new original tunes and is produced by Jeff Tweedy with Patrick Sansone and Tom Schick.

The Whole Love is a veritable sonic stew, showcasing Wilco's far-reaching musical prowess (multiple guitars, keyboards, synthesizers and percussion plus Mellotron, strings, loops and more) perfectly accompanying Jeff Tweedy's provocative and insightful lyrics. The Whole Love opens with the seven-minute "Art of Almost" and concludes with the twelve-minute "One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend)." In between: 10 adventurous tunes (each clocking in at four minutes or less) including the current single, "I Might" which was released this past weekend at the band's Solid Sound Festival.

Coinciding with the album's release will be the first leg of Wilco's North American tour, with performances at Toronto's Massey Hall, Boston's Wang Theatre, New York City's Central Park Summerstage, Nashville's Ryman and more. Nick Lowe supports on all dates. Complete tour dates are listed below.

The Whole Love track listing: Art of Almost, I Might, Sunloathe, Dawned On Me, Black Moon, Born Alone, Open Mind, Capitol City, Standing O, Rising Red Lung, Whole Love, One Sunday Morning (Song For Jane Smiley's Boyfriend).
