Wilco released a new album, Ode to Joy, earlier this month via the band's own dBpm label. Last night they live-streamed their show at Brooklyn Steel in New York and you can watch archived video for the entire two-hour-plus concert below. Also below are the band's upcoming tour dates in case you want to catch a future show in person. Keep in mind that there are sound issues with the first few minutes of the video, but they get cleared up quickly.

Also, we previously posted our review of Ode to Joy and you can read that here.

Pick up our current print issue to read our exclusive interview with Wilco on Ode to Joy and to find out what frontman Jeff Tweedy's all-time favorite album is.

Previously Wilco shared Ode to Joy's first single, "Love Is Everywhere (Beware)," which was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared another song from the album, "Everyone Hides," via a video for the track in which the band play an elaborate game of hide and seek. "Everyone Hides" was also one of our Songs of the Week. Then they stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform "Everyone Hides."

Wilco's last studio album was 2016's Schmilco. Meanwhile, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy released a new solo album, WARM, last November via dBpm, which was followed by the companion album, WARMER, released in April via dBpm as a Record Store Day exclusive. In 2018 he also released the memoir Let's Go (So We Can Get Back).

Ode to Joy was recorded at The Loft in Chicago. Tweedy and his bandmate Glenn Kotche spearheaded each song, but each song also features all six members of the band.

A press release says Ode to Joy "encourages the act of finding joy in a dark political climate. The album presents a unique rhythm track and a minimalist instrumentation, with lyrics at once observant, hopeful, morbid, tolerant, and abstract."

In a press release Tweedy says the album features "really big, big folk songs, these monolithic, brutal structures that these delicate feelings are hung on."

The album will be available on CD, standard black vinyl, limited edition color custom vinyl, and "a special deluxe LP book, designed by long-time Wilco collaborator Lawrence Azerrad."

Also read our 2015 joint interview between Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and Australian singer/songwriter/guitarist Courtney Barnett, from our Best of 2015 issue.

Also, Welsh singer/songwriter/guitarist Cate Le Bon recently covered Wilco's "Company In My Back," a song from their 2004 album A Ghost Is Born. The cover was taken from a new compilation of Wilco covers fittingly entitled Wilco Covered that is being put out with the November issue of the British music magazine Uncut. It includes 17 artists covering Wilco songs, including Sharon Van Etten, Low, Kurt Vile, Courtney Barnett, Ryley Walker, Parquet Courts, Twin Peaks, and more.
