Published Jun 09, 2011A while back, prolific alt-country stars Wilco announced they were starting up their own record label, dBpm Records and, with it, a new seven-inch, to be released this summer. We already knew the vinyl single would feature new tune "I Might" on one side and a cover of Nick Lowe's "I Love My Label" as the flip, but we now finally know when we can get our hands on the release.
As previously reported, the limited-edition "I Might" single will be pressed on clear vinyl and sold at the group's Solid Sound Festival, which takes place in North Adams, MA from June 24 to 26. Following that, two more versions of the release will be issued on July 19.
A limited press on blue vinyl will be available through the group's online store and via the Anti- shop, while the standard black vinyl version will be loosed upon traditional retailers. All copies come with a digital download and you can pre-order copies now. That's the newly revealed cover above.
A press release also confirms that "I Might" will appear on the as-of-yet untitled follow-up to 2009's Wilco (The Album). The new record will drop sometime this fall, and while a tracklisting has yet to appear, band leader Jeff Tweedy recently dished some dirt on the other songs on the set.
"There are two strong threads of material," he told Rolling Stone, "one being a little weirder -- snot-nosed obnoxious pop songs -- and the other more languid, atmospheric-country music."
