I'll Sing It

  • This was the first song to be released from Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy's first solo album, Sukierae (pronounced, "sue-key-ray"). The track features backing vocals by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius.
  • The record finds Tweedy performing with his 18-year-old son Spencer on drums. "When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing," Tweedy said. "Solo to me meant that I would do everything - write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer's been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo."
