On July 16th, Wilco fans (and there are a lot of them around here) were pleasantly surprised by the sudden availability of a new Wilco album titled Star Wars. Then again, it's been nearly four years since the last new studio album from the band, and the feeling was that a new record was overdue. Star Wars became available as a free download via Wilco's website. A CD version will be released in late August, and a vinyl version of the album is expected in late November. It's a lively and tuneful record from Jeff Tweedy and his group of expert musicians, with lyrics from Tweedy that often cause the listener to wonder what on earth he's singing about- and that's just the way we like it!
