Wilco are eyeing a Spring 2009 release for their next album, Jeff Tweedy told an Albany, New York radio station. Whereas their last album Sky Blue Sky was recorded under almost jam-session circumstances, Tweedy says the band will "allow ourselves a little bit more leeway in terms of sculpting the sound in the studio and doing overdubs and using the studio as another instrument. Last time around, it was more of a document." Wilco are already performing a pair of new songs live: "One Wing," which is reportedly reminiscent of Sky Blue closer "On and On and On," and the looser, riff-driven "Sunny Feeling." While Tweedy said following the release of Sky Blue Sky that those studio sessions resulted in a number of unfinished songs, it's unclear whether those tunes will be the basis for the band's seventh album.
