Watch Tweedy Perform on ‘CBS This Morning: Saturday’
Tweedy – the band featuring the Wilco leader and his son, Spencer, on drums – dropped by CBS This Morning: Saturday for an interview and to perform a couple songs ("Wait for Love" and "Low Key") from their debut full-length, Sukirae. Tweedy said during the interview that the band was originally supposed to be a solo project, but he decided to make it a family affair when his wife was diagnosed with two forms of cancer.
"It became this family thing but I think just the real presence and the room from that point on, making the record, it felt like Suzy was a part of it. It was something very personal happening, even if the songs weren't directly pointing at it," Tweedy said. "I think that there are some lyrics that probably wouldn't have been written if I was facing probably one of the most stressful times in my life."
