For Wilco, The Whole Love represents more than just the eighth studio album from this innovative Chicago rock band. It signifies yet another new chapter in the band's constantly evolving, enduring and storied career. Just as their departure from Warner Bros for the release of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot created a thrilling story, now The Whole Love, on their newly launched dBpm Records, sets one of contemporary music's most creative and independent-minded bands on a wide open road.
Recorded in their northside Chicago loft, the 12 songs on The Whole Love capture the balance between the band's art sensibilities, their fondness for traditional American music and their love of classic guitar-driven pop rock. The Whole Love is a veritable sonic stew, showcasing Wilco's far-reaching musical prowess (multiple guitars, keyboards, synthesizers and percussion plus Mellotron, strings, loops and more) perfectly accompanying Jeff Tweedy's provocative and insightful lyrics.
Produced by the band and engineered by Tom Schick (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright).
