To get the album finished, Tweedy called on someone special to play drums: his 18 year-old son Spencer. The two banged out 20 songs for the album, and they’ll also be going on tour this year.
“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing,” Tweedy said in a press release. “Solo to me meant that I would do everything – write the songs, play all the instruments and sing.” Of course, the project grew from there as Tweedy ended bringing his son into the studio, as well as a few special guests.
