Today marks the release of one of the most anticipated albums of the year. You could put Neon Bible, Sky Blue Sky, Easy Tiger and a handful of others on a short list together. I’ve been looking forward to Sky Blue Sky‘s release since Jeff Tweedy mentioned it in September of 2005 at Stubb’s BBQ. It’s one of those albums that’s been leaked for a while, and the band has been streaming it for weeks, so there was little surprise, but it still got me up early to start it playing. Wilco appeared on Prairie Home Companion over the weekend playing several songs, you can check that out here. It’s a solid record, equal parts Being There and A Ghost is Born with a little Summerteeth thrown in for good measure. I say with full confidence, get your hands on a copy of Sky Blue Sky. It’s an instant classic.
