If you want a music video (or a wooden chair or a steak) made right, you turn to Ron Swanson. Jeff Tweedy knows this.

The Wilco frontman recently filmed a video for the new song, ‘Low Key,’ from his new band, Tweedy, with none other than mustachioed ‘Parks and Recreation‘ star Nick Offerman at the helm. Pitchfork reports the shoot went down last weekend in Chicago and features Tweedy along with his son, Spencer, who drums for the band. Listen to the track below:

Of course, this isn’t the first time Tweedy and Offerman have worked together. Tweedy has appeared on ‘Parks and Rec’ as Pawnee rock legend Scott Tanner on the show — famously reuniting his fictional band, Land Ho!, during an episode earlier this year.

Wilco also announced yesterday (Sept. 2) that in addition to playing some shows this fall to commemorate the band’s 20th anniversary, they’ll release a greatest hits compilation and rarities box set.

‘Low Key’ comes from Tweedy’s upcoming full-length, ‘Sukierae,’ set to drop Sept. 16.
