Jeff Tweedy will release his latest solo album WARM on Nov. 30 via dBpm Records, according to a press release. WARM was produced and recorded entirely by Jeff at Wilco‘s Loft Studio (with help from some usual collaborators – son Spencer Tweedy, drummer Glenn Kotche and Tom Schick). The first single is titled Some Birds, and its accompanying video (above) features two Tweedys, with one getting a reverse haircut in a beauty parlour while the other performs on a variety of double-neck guitars. The meaning? Well, the Wilco frontman describes the song as “like a lot of songs on WARM, being a confrontation between self and shadow self simultaneously feeling I’m to blame and not to blame, present and gone, and utterly confused, but determined to hold someone accountable.” Adds director Seth Henrikson: “The concept for the video naturally highlights Jeff’s amazing song writing and lyrical genius. However, it also exploits another of Jeff’s gifts — his uncanny sense of men’s fashion and hairstyles.” Who knew?
