Wilco’s eighth studio album won’t reach our ears until later this year, but our first possible preview is here early: an excellent new song performed live by frontman Jeff Tweedy at Montreal’s Olympia Theatre on Friday night. Tweedy didn’t say whether this tune will make the next Wilco LP, but with YHF/SBS-esque lyrics like “loneliness postponed” and “I was born to die alone,” I’d say it’s a safe bet to be in the running. *Update: The YouTube clip disappeared, but an audio version is still available above. Also, here’s another new one.
