For Wilco (the album) chords and lyrics, CLICK HERE!
By Chris Moore:
Hello and welcome to another all-new edition of “Chris Moore Monday” here at the best acoustic rock cover song blog on the web today! For the first time in almost three months, it is my pleasure to bring you a song that has yet to be released.
“Solitaire” is a track from Wilco’s new album, which will be released tomorrow and is titled Wilco (the album). A few weeks ago, Wilco streamed the entire album on their website for fans to listen to. This is a tradition stretching back to when they streamed Yankee Hotel Foxtrot online after being dropped from their label at the turn of the millennium. This time around, I even broke my general rule of waiting to hear an album until it is released in full. While I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to listen, I also felt like I was breaking a sacred rule, as well as building myself up for disappointment when they stopped streaming it and I had to wait for the album to come out on June 30th.
I decided to listen to it only once straight through, and I ended up talking on the phone and doing other work, so I got only a taste of what is to come tomorrow on New Music Tuesday.
From what I heard, I am very much looking forward to hearing the album in full through my car stereo and without distractions. To help prepare and build up anticipation for tomorrow, I found a YouTube recording of the eighth track, “Solitaire,” and I actually found a good set of chords online already to help me learn the song. Go figure: accurate chords online…
Anyway, I’m off to watch a replay of last week’s episode of TNA Impact! with Jim, Mike, and their father. Apparently, their dad was also out of town and missed what has been said to be one of the best Impact!‘s of the year. I’m excited, and thus I’m cutting my post a bit shorter than usual tonight so I don’t miss any.
I’ll be back soon with more writing and posting than usual if I have my way, as I am officially on summer break and beginning to plan out the next two months so that they are relaxing, and yet productive.
See you next session!
