Wilco‘s Jeff Tweedy has announced a new solo album, WARM, and shared a video for its first single, “Some Birds.” WARM is due out November 30 via dBpm. Sam Henrikson directed the “Some Birds” video, which features Tweedy watching himself get a haircut. Check it out below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art, as well as Tweedy’s upcoming tour dates.

WARM was recorded in Tweedy’s studio in Chicago, The Loft. Tweedy produced and recorded the album himself and sessions also featured his son Spencer Tweedy, Tom Schick, and Wilco’s Glenn Kotche. It’s the follow-up to 2017’s Together At Last, which was a solo acoustic album that featured new versions of songs by Wilco as well as Tweedy’s side-projects Loose Fur and Golden Smog.

In a press release, Tweedy describes “Some Birds” as “like a lot of songs on WARM, being a confrontation between self and shadow self simultaneously feeling I’m to blame and not to blame, present and gone, and utterly confused, but determined to hold someone accountable.”

In the press release Henrikson had this to say about directing the “Some Birds” video: “When I got the call to collaborate with Jeff on the video for ‘Some Birds’ it was a thrill and an honor. The concept for the video naturally highlights Jeff’s amazing songwriting and lyrical genius. However, it also exploits another of Jeff’s gifts—his uncanny sense of men’s fashion and hairstyles. I’m excited to share it with Tweedy fans!”
