Jeff Tweedy has announced a deluxe version of last year's solo album Love Is The King, and has unveiled a cover of Neil Young's "The Old Country Waltz" to accompany the news.
Tweedy's cover of Young's "The Old Country Waltz" is teamed with a video filmed at Chicago's Hideout that features a band made up of Liam Kazar, James Elkington, Ohmme’s Sima Cunningham, and Tweedy’s sons Sammy and Spencer.
Love Is The King / Live Is The King will be released as a two-disc CD in Decmber with a vinyl release due in 2022. The deluxe version of Love Is The King will include the original album, plus a bonus disc with live versions of the album tracks played with a live band.
The live recordings of the Love Is The King songs were recorded at The Loft (Wilco’s studio) and Chicago’s Constellation club in January 2021.
