For much of 2011, Wilco have spent their time not only as musicians, but also as entrepreneurs. The Chicago rockers launched dBpm Records back in January and will be running Solid Sound Festival once again this year. Now, the group will make their first dBpm Records release, unsurprisingly, a Wilco single.
The 7” vinyl will promote the forthcoming single “I Might” along with a cover of Nick Lowe’s “I Love My Label.” Wilco plans to drop the record starting at their very own Solid Sound Festival, which takes place from June 24-26. The rest of the world will have to wait another month before being able to purchase the single.
Tweedy also spoke to the band’s first self-released record, which has a working title of Get Well Soon Everybody, in a recent interview with Spin. “I do think it’s a little bit more obnoxious and irreverent of a pop record than people have heard from us, maybe, ever,” he says. “I don’t know what type of record is going to win out or if it just ends up as a double record. I put off that decision until I know which songs are still kicking my ass.”
