Wilco - Wilco's Triumphant Return With 'The Whole Love'

Wilco have returned with their eighth studio album, 'The Whole Love' - a record already dubbed as one of the year's best. The Chicago rockers, best known for their seminal 2002 effort 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot', have won universal acclaim for their latest album which hits shelves in the U.S. on Tuesday (27th September 2011).
The band, headed by the once-volatile frontman Jeff Tweedy, previewed several songs from the new record during a concert in Central Park on Friday evening (23rd September 2011). Reviewing the show, Jon Pareles of the New York Times noted, "There were Motown stomps, latter-day garage-rock, quietly finger-picked ballads and howling feedback finales. They reflected The Whole Love, an album that reinvigorates Wilco after two unnecessarily restrained ones". The new album is the band's first on their own label dBpm. They released first single 'I Might' during the Solid Sound Festival in Massachusetts in June, and later streamed the entire album on their official website between 3rd September-4th September 2011. Wilco recently headed out on a U.S. tour in support of the new album - the band are set to play shows in Atlanta, Nashville, St Louis and Madison before travelling to the UK for dates in Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol and London.
Wilco have been nominated for five Grammy Awards in total - winning two in 2005 for their album 'A Ghost is Born'.
