In an interview with D.C. website Express Night Out, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline mentioned that Wilco’s new album would be on their own record label. “I don’t know the name of it,” Cline told Express Night Out. “Jeff was basically not wanting to be on a record label for a while—he didn’t renew his contract with Nonesuch—so we’re striking out on our own, our own label. There might be a 7-inch or something, a little souvenir when we do this Mass MoCA [Solid Sound Festival in North Adams, Ma.] I’m not sure, really. Basically, Jeff and [Wilco manager] Tony Margherita are the masterminds, so I’m just cruising with what they want to do.”[via Paste Magazine]

Wilco Leaves Nonesuch..... Wilco (The Label) On Tap?
It appears that Wilco is joining the growing number of bands/musicians who are either starting their own label or finding new ways to release new music. I am really excited to hear what Jeff Tweedy and company has up their sleeves. Stay tuned!
