Watch Wilco Play Hide-and-Seek Around Chicago in ‘Everyone Hides’ Video

Track marks second single off band’s eleventh LP Ode to Joy, out October 4th

Wilco play hide-and-seek around their hometown of Chicago in the charming new video for “Everyone Hides.” The track is the second single off their eleventh LP Ode to Joy, out October 4th via dBpm Records.

The clip features frontman Jeff Tweedy singing the opening lines to the autumnal track — “If you’re telling yourself a story/Where the secrets twist like vines — before the band suddenly comes to a halt, Tweedy covers his hands with his eyes and counts down from a thousand. The song picks up again as each member disperses and hides in a notable Chicago locale (for instance, drummer Glenn Kotche finds himself in Marina City, the iconic building featured on the cover of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot), while Tweedy hilariously stays behind, laying on the couch, yawning and eating noodles.

“‘Everyone Hides’ is the first promotional video to feature Wilco as a living breathing band of humans in close to 20 years,” Tweedy said in a statement. “Maybe for obvious reasons we’ve avoided putting ourselves forward in this way and have tried to play to our strengths musically or, I don’t know, maybe we’ve just been lazy… Or suspicious of expenditures outside of our focus on album making. For whatever reason this time around we just said fuck it and had a blast.”

Wilco also added dates to their upcoming fall tour, which includes three nights at the Palace Theater in St. Paul, Minnesota, November 22nd through the 24th, as well as the return of Winterlude, their hometown holiday residency at Chicago’s Palace Theater, which kicks off December 15th.

Ode to Joy is available for pre-order here.
