On "Bombs Above," Jeff Tweedy looks back on his life in terms of their songs he's left behind. He told Q magazine: "That one really started to take shape after the 2016 US election. That was a period of frustration and of thinking as a musician, what do I actually do? The conclusion I came to his you do what you can to remind people that they're human and see each other as human, then there's a lot less damage to be done. I can at least console myself with that sometimes."
