Wilco Release New Song “All Lives, You Say?” to Benefit Southern Poverty Law Center

Shared in Honor of Jeff Tweedy’s Late Father, Perhaps in Response to Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally

Wilco have released a brand new song, "All Lives, You Say?," to their Bandcamp page. Its release is perhaps timed in response to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend in which three were killed (including 32-year-old anti-racism protestor Heather Heyer, when a car purposefully sped into a crowd of protestors). The song's title references the "All Lives Matter" slogan some spout in response to "Black Lives Matter." The song is also inspired by Jeff Tweedy's late father (Robert L. Tweedy). As Tweedy explained in a statement: "My dad was named after a Civil War general, and he voted for Barack Obama twice. He used to say, 'If you know better, you can do better.' America-we know better. We can do better." Proceeds from the song will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center in honor of Robert L. Tweedy. Listen below.
