Wilco working on new album

As Wilco have just formed their own label (dBpm Records), they have also gone into their own studio/clubhouse to begin work on their next album.

“We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me,” he said on their website. “And, to be working with Anti- — a label that was started by a punk rock guy to sell his own records — seems like a perfect fit for us.”

An update on the band’s Facebook page reads: “Okay just a reminder: Wilco are recording a record. It will be out later this year and will be followed by many, many concert dates. To quote Derek Smalls, they shall tour the ‘World and Elsewhere’ beginning in Late 2011.”

Also, the album  Tweedy released in 2010 with soul legend Mavis Staples, “You Are Not Alone”, won best Americana album last Sunday night at the Grammy’s.
