Wilco to release iTunes Session (w/ cover of Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind")

Wilco

Wilco have announced that they will release an iTunes Session come January 24th via the band's very own Dbpm Records. The 8-track effort will feature mostly tunes from their latest album, 2011's The Whole Love, as well as a couple Wilco classics and most excitingly a cover of Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind" with Mr. Lowe himself. The session was recorded at the band's Chicago loft this past December.

Pre-order the release over at iTunes now. Tracklist and video of Wilco performing said cover live with opening act Nick Lowe, below. Speaking of covers, if you haven't yet, watch Jeff Tweedy & Co. rehearse The Band's "The Weight" backstage with Mavis Staples.
