Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy Is Working on a Memoir
Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy will release a memoir detailing both his professional and personal life.
The forthcoming memoir has been described as “funny, disarming and honest,” with Tweedy opening up about the trajectory of his career, his thoughts on the current music industry landscape and his work with other musicians, including Mavis Staples.
“I have stories to tell,” Tweedy told Rolling Stone, “and I’d like for this book to be a combination of those stories about my experiences, and maybe a window into one person’s creative process, as well as some of what I’ve seen working with other artists in my current and former bands, in the studio, on the road, in my basement with my sons and more.”
The memoir has yet to receive a title or release date. Dutton, a Penguin Group imprint, will publish the book.
Most recently, Tweedy and his Wilco bandmates surprise-released their ninth full-length, Star Wars. The band will launch a tour behind the album on Jan. 25 in Pittsburgh, with dates scheduled through mid-February. See an itinerary right here, then grab tickets at the band's website.
