WILCO: Lockdown Music From Jeff Tweety
Jeff Tweedy from Wilco has used life under lockdown to make an album. Love Is the King is out on October 23rd, and there are two songs from the album out now -- the title track and "Guess Again." Jeff says, "At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself... 'Guess Again' is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away.” And that, “Just a few weeks later things began to sound like 'Love Is the King' -- a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in."
Brandi Carlile has covered the Tears for Fears song that's perhaps been covered the most over the past four decades -- "Mad World." Watch her piano and vocal take on it.
Billie Eilish fans will have to wait until the pandemic is over for a new album. Her brother Finneas tells us, "Billie and I are full steam ahead on her next record. I’m working on my own album too." But a release date isn't coming anytime soon. “Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record. It’s the vaccine record! I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to."
