Jeff Tweedy Discusses Addiction, A Ghost Is Born, More in New Book Excerpt

This month, Jeff Tweedy releases his memoir Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back): A Memoir of Recording and Discording With Wilco, Etc. You can now read an excerpt over at Rolling Stone. In the passage, Tweedy discusses his opiates addiction in the early 2000s and its effect on the creation of Wilco’s 2004 album A Ghost Is Born. “I thought I was going to die,” he writes. “Every song we recorded seemed likely to be my last. Every note felt final.”

Tweedy also discusses how his struggle affected his lyrical approach for the album and his goal for the completed work to help his sons “reconstruct my worldview, to have some deeper connection to the dad they’d lost.” Find the excerpt at Rolling Stone.

Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) is out November 13. Tweedy kicks off his book tour the same day. His new solo album, WARM, arrives November 30.
