Wilco Drop ‘Tired Of Taking It Out On You’ And Announce A 2022 North American Tour

Wilco is on the verge of something big, in a literal sense: They recently announced a new album, Cruel Country, that sees them returning to their country roots across 21 tracks. Today, they’ve shared on of those songs, “Tired Of Taking It Out On You,” a pleasant, midtempo number with just the right amount of twang.

Jeff Tweedy says of the song:

“I’ve realized over the years that a lot of the songs I’ve written have worked as reminders to myself to pay attention to various things. Sometimes I think I’ve figured out how the world works in some small way, and I worry I’ll forget it if I don’t sing it back to myself occasionally. This song, I believe, is going to come in handy for just that purpose. I’m a person who needs to stay alert to how I’m treating others when I’m not feeling my best. And now that I mention it, when I look around, it seems like a lot of us have been taking things out on each other when we would be better served striving for understanding and empathy. I’m just trying to be honest with myself, and I guess I’m hoping if this song can help me focus on that, maybe someone else could find it useful in the same way.”

The band also announced a bunch of North American tour dates today, which run from mid-August to early October. Their Solid Sound Festival is also coming up, from May 27 to 29.
