Wilco To Hit Studio After Summer Tour – Sam Jones Live DVD Due Out

Wilco will head back into the studio in August to begin recording the follow-up to 2004’s A Ghost Is Born. “For some reason, we’ve been digging a lot of dance music recently, like Fela Kuti,” says Wilco singer Jeff Tweedy, “so look out!”

First, the band will kick off a summer tour on May 28th in Washington. Fellow rockers My Morning Jacket and hip-hoppers the Roots will pop up along the way. “I read an interview where [Roots drummer] ?uestlove said he really likes A Ghost Is Born,” Tweedy says of the pairing.

Filmmaker Sam Jones, who directed the acclaimed 2002 Wilco documentary I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, captured the band live during its recent four-night stand at Chicago’s Vic Theatre. A live DVD is due later this year.
