Wilco Perform ‘I’m the Man Who Loves You’ Acoustically for ‘Fallon’
If you've had the pleasure of seeing Wilco recently, you've no doubt been graced with their "unplugged" presence in form of an encore or two. The boys, led by Jeff Tweedy, will gather around a few condenser microphones with their instruments and belt out fan-favorites. Giving fans an up-close-and-personal view of this feat, Wilco performed 'I'm the Man Who Loves You' as a web exclusive for 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' and you can check it out above.
Off of 2002's lauded 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,' 'I'm the Man Who Loves You' was one of Wilco's noisier (at the time) tunes, with crunchy guitars and a powerful brass section. Witnessing the track stripped down to its bare bones -- not to mention seeing the band crammed in the green room -- brings it to a whole new level.
Compare it with the studio track:
Wilco have a string of sold-out shows in December -- but for now, Tweedy and his son, Spencer, are on the road in Europe in support of his latest solo effort, 'Sukierae.' Get their full tour itinerary here.
Oh, and 'I'm the Man Who Loves You' appears on the band's first-ever greatest hits compilation, 'What's Your 20? The Best of Wilco,' set for release on Nov. 17. In addition to the comp, Wilco are also releasing the massive set of rarities and B-sides, 'Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014,' on the same day. Get details on both albums here.
