Jeff Tweedy discusses depression & more in new podcast; Wilco share ‘Being There’ outtake
Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy stopped by John Moe’s podcast The Hilarious World of Depression, a show where guests talk about depression with a humorous outlook. In the episode, Jeff discussed his frequent migraines growing up, and his history struggling with anxiety and depression, turning to alcohol, marijuana, and opioids, before eventually spending time in rehab. Aside from these heavy topics, Jeff also talked about the beginnings of his record collection, and his large amount of guitars. It’s a rather insightful listen, and you can hear the full episode here.
Meanwhile, Wilco recently shared an unreleased demo titled “Dynamite My Soul,” taken from the sessions for their 1996 double album Being There. The new outtake is included as part of the band’s upcoming reissues of their first two records, out December 1 via Rhino (preorder). Listen to the song below.
Elsewhere, Jeff Tweedy wrote and produced Mavis Staples‘ upcoming If All I Was Was Black, which comes out Friday (11/17). Staples recently shared a great new single from the album, “Build A Bridge,” which she performed on Conan. You can watch the performance below.
