Wilco Releases Title Track from Upcoming Album Cousin


Wilco, the renowned indie-rock band, has released the title track from their upcoming album, Cousin. This song delves into the complexities of family dynamics, depicting a heated conflict between cousins. In the lyrics, Jeff Tweedy sings about objections and boundaries being crossed within the family.

The album Cousin is scheduled for release on September 29, 2023, via dBpm Records. It marks Wilco’s return after their celebration of the 20th anniversary of their classic album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot with an extensive box set last year.

The record was produced by Welsh singer Cate Le Bon, who praised Wilco’s ability to fluidly explore different musical genres while maintaining an authentic thread in their work. Jeff Tweedy described the album as a feeling of being both part of and apart from the world, akin to being a cousin to the world.

With Cousin set for release later this month, Wilco fans can anticipate a thought-provoking and emotionally charged album based on the themes explored in these early releases.
