American alt-rock band Wilco’s ninth studio album, Star Wars, is now available to fans on the band’s website, wilcoworld.net.
The album’s sound is classic Wilco, with plenty of guitar shredding and a couple of acoustic country songs. And no, it doesn’t really have anything to do with Star Wars, the movie, but the cover does include a fabulously kitschy cat.
Front man Jeff Tweedy has a simple justification for the band’s magnanimity in making the album free. “It felt like it would be fun,” he said on the band’s Facebook page. “What’s more fun than a surprise?”
