Jeff Tweedy has been a busy man, and not just when it comes to making music. Wilco have been working hard on their upcoming full-length, and luckily, frontman Tweedy has no qualms about divulging the details. In a recent interview with Spin, Tweedy assured fans that Get Well Soon Everybody, the current working title for the band's eighth studio album, will be release—if it all goes according to plan—for our listening pleasure in September.

According to Spin, the band has laid down a generous 20 tracks, which Tweedy claims are split between "experimental-leaning rock and cinematic-sounding country music...you know, folk music." They have yet to decide which tracks will make the cut, although Tweedy does muse that Get Well Soon Everybody might end up as a two-disc set (let's keep our fingers crossed).Whatever the length, audiophiles can expect a new batch of intricate and unconventional pop songs that may or may not sit well with fans—but Tweedy doesn't seem to mind. "I do think it's a little bit more obnoxious and irreverent of a pop record than people have heard from us, maybe, ever," Tweedy admits.

Wilco also recently announced that a 7" single will be released in June. The single, "I Might," is the indie rock outfit's freshest material since 2009's Wilco (the album), and it will be backed by a cover of Nick Lowe's "I Love My Label"—very appropriate, considering "I Might" marks the premiere release for Wilco's newly formed label, dBpm Records. "I Might" will be available at the Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, MA, with a wider released set for July.
