Jeff Tweedy’s Love Is the King conquers anger and fear with happiness. He released the album in conjunction with his book 'How to Write One Song'. The Wilco front man’s response to the pandemic is a mellow, easygoing collection of songs stressing the importance of human connection. The new record is the work of a songwriter with clear eyes and a full heart.
Separating Love Is the King from How to Write One Song may be impossible. Tweedy began composing songs for the album while at work on his songwriting handbook, using some of his freshly minted tunes to illuminate particular points of his process. Recorded in April alongside his sons, Spencer and Sam, Love finds Tweedy basking in the comfort of quality time spent making music with those closest to him.
“At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself… ‘Guess Again’ is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away, counting my blessings — taking stock in my good fortune to have love in my life. Just a few weeks later things began to sound like ‘Love Is The King’ — a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in. Still hopeful but definitely discovering the limits of my own ability to self soothe.” – Jeff Tweedy
