Triple R’s Album of the Week is ‘WARM’, the first solo album of all original material from Jeff Tweedy, the longstanding leader of American rock group @wilco.
Tweedy is also an acclaimed collaborator and producer, working with the iconic Mavis Staples for her past three records, and previously with Billy Bragg for the two ‘Mermaid Avenue’ albums. ‘WARM’ arrives as a companion to Tweedy’s recently published memoir, ‘Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back)’, and finds Tweedy in a deeply reflective frame of mind as he writes on subjects spanning family, friendship, addiction, growing up, growing wiser and growing older. There’s sadness and humour and a fire glowing at the centre of these restrained rock and country infused tracks. As Tweedy sings on the title track: ‘I keep some heat inside / Like a red brick in the summer / Warm when the sun has died.’ For the chance to win a copy of this week’s Album Of The Week, Triple R subscribers can email us before Sunday 16 December at firstname.lastname@example.org
