In 2018, Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy published his debut book Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back). It was followed by 2020’s How To Write One Song. He recently announced his forthcoming book World Within A Song: Music That Changed My Life And Life That Changed My Music, and now he’s shared dates for a book tour.
The book, arriving in November, is, in Tweedy’s words, “the one I probably would have written first if I were more ambitious, and if I had been a little more clear-eyed about what I care most for in this world…Other people’s songs.” In the book, he rhapsodizes about songs by he Replacements, Joni Mitchell, Otis Redding, Billie Eilish, Mavis Staples, the Velvet Underground, and more.
