V/A - Wilcovered 2LP RSD2020 release
Personally curated by Jeff Tweedy for the November issue of Uncut magazine this collection comprises seventeen newly recorded Wilco covers done by the band’s artist friends, including Cortney Barnett, Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten, Low, Cate Le Bon and Parquet Courts among others, one previously released version of “Jesus, Etc.” by Norah Jones’ band Puss N Boots and one recently unearthed (but never released) cover of “Casino Queen” by Billy Gibbons featuring Jeff Tweedy himself on guitar alongside Billy. There is not a weak moment on this album and many outstanding ones. Sure to appeal to the rabid Wilco fan, the CD which accompanied the magazine sold out quickly and is no longer available.
