Wilco Present New Single/Video, “Everyone Hides,”
and Announce Their Winterlude shows at The Chicago Theatre
Ode to Joy Out October 4th via dBpm Records
“[‘Love is Everywhere (Beware)’] starts as a reassuring waltz, strummed on acoustic guitar, soon adding perpetual-motion lead-guitar triplets that are prettily ornamental”
– The New York Times
“There’s a languid but unmistakable charm in [‘Love is Everywhere (Beware)’]’s rippling lead guitars, which glint over sparse acoustic guitars and rumbling percussion like the sunshine after a thunderstorm.” – Pitchfork
“…both an affirmation of love’s enduring power and a warning that it could be undermined at any moment.” – NPR’s All Songs Considered
“The songs here are simple, but they contain multitudes.” — Uncut, 9/10
Wilco present a new video/single, “Everyone Hides,” from their forthcoming album, Ode to Joy, due October 4th via dBpm Records. Capping off two months of forthcoming touring through the east and Midwest United States, Wilco announce the return of Winterlude, the band’s popular hometown holiday residency, featuring four shows this year at the Chicago Theatre on December 15, 16, 18 & 19. Show time each night is 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 20th at 10am and will be available online at Ticketmaster.com and at the Chicago Theatre box office. Reserved seats are priced from $49.50 to $89.50. There is a strictly enforced 4-ticket per-show limit.
“Everyone Hides” follows the extrospective lead single, “Love Is Everywhere (Beware),” and acknowledges that people don’t reveal all parts of their true selves. The accompanying video, created by Picture Show Films, reflects the track’s warm, spirited sound, showing Wilco playing hide and seek around Chicago, including at some locations fans will surely recognize. See below for the link to the “Everyone Hides” video.
“‘Everyone Hides’ is the first promotional video to feature Wilco as a living breathing band of humans in close to 20 years,” says Jeff Tweedy. “Maybe for obvious reasons we’ve avoided putting ourselves forward in this way and have tried to play to our strengths musically or, I don’t know, maybe we’ve just been lazy… Or suspicious of expenditures outside of our focus on album making. For whatever reason this time around we just said f**k it and had a blast.”
Ode to Joy was written and recorded at The Loft, and is comprised of “really big, big folk songs, these monolithic, brutal structures that these delicate feelings are hung on,” as described by Tweedy. While all six members of the band can be heard on every song, Tweedy and Glenn Kotche were the launching pad from which most of the songs on Ode to Joy materialized – Kotche’s percussion propels the music forward while Tweedy’s measured words flesh out the cleared paths. Across the entire album, drums pound and plod with a steady one–two pulse, meant to mimic the movement of marching—a powerful act utilized on both sides of the authoritarian wall. There’s also a sense of comfort that comes with the rhythmic marching sound.
Additionally, last week saw the announcement of Wilco Covered – a limited edition CD released via Uncut Magazine‘s November 2019 Issue. The CD features 17 new recordings of Wilco songs covered by artists including Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten, Parquet Courts, Low, Whitney, Twin Peaks, Ohmme, and many others. The CD will be free with magazine purchase, available in stores starting Sept. 19 or available to preorder here.
