Wilco Release iBook, Spanish-Sung Rendition of ‘Dawned on Me’
Wilco have a couple of goodies for fans to get their hands on through iTunes. The Chicago band has just released an iBook entitled ‘The Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago’ and a version of ‘Dawned On Me’ sung completely in Spanish.
As Consequence of Sound explains, ‘The Incredible Shrinking Tour of Chicago’ allows readers to re-live all five of Wilco’s 5-show stint in their hometown of the Windy City last December through photos, poster art, set lists and two exclusive video clips, one which features an intimate rehearsal of the Band’s ‘The Weight’ alongside Mavis Staples and Nick Lowe and another rehearsal of Jeff Tweedy’s solo jam, ‘You Are Not Alone.’
The second of the two digital offerings from Wilco is the all-Spanish track ‘Dawned on Me,’ renamed ‘Me Avivé.’ The track celebrates the band’s recent headlining gig at this year’s Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona, Spain and serves “as a thank you to Spanish-speaking fans everywhere,” according to a press release. ‘Dawned on Me’ originally appeared on Wilco’s most recent album, ‘The Whole Love,’ which was released in September of last year.
In related news, Wilco have announced more dates in their extensive road schedule. They will resume touring in the U.S. on June 22 with back-to-back shows in Morrison, Colo. Their last show of 2012 is currently scheduled for September 30 in Los Angeles, Calif.
