Wilco’s New Album ‘Cousin’: Everything To Know Including The Release Date, Tracklist & More

Wilco‘s classic album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was memorialized last year with a special box set that reminded listeners how much they loved the Chicago band. Lucky for them, Wilco is back with new material, courtesy their forthcoming album Cousin.

“I’m cousin to the world,” Jeff Tweedy explained about the record in a statement. “I don’t feel like I’m a blood relation, but maybe I’m a cousin by marriage. It’s this feeling of being in it and out of it at the same time.”

With the release just a few days away, here is everything we know about Cousin.

Release Date

Cousin is out 9/29 via dBpm Records. Find more information here.

Singles

First, Wilco shared “Evicted” as the lead single, a buoyant ballad with melancholy lyrics: “Maybe I’m a whistle on a lonely old train / I’m crying all the time / Listen to the sound getting further away / Fading deep into the night.” That was followed by the upbeat title track, which depicts a fight between family.
