Wilco have announced a new EP of all new material, Hot Sun Cool Shroud, released on 28 June – just in time for the band’s Solid Sound Festival.

“It’s fun to have something new to release at Solid Sound,” said Jeff Tweedy. “This year we’re putting out an EP with a summertime-after-dark kind of feeling.

“It starts off pretty hot, like heat during the day, has some instrumentals on it that are a little agitated and uncomfortable and ends with a cooling breeze. There are tracks on Hot Sun Cool Shroud that are more aggressive and angular than anything we’ve put out in a while, and a song about love melting you like ice cream into a puddle of sugary soup. All the pieces of summer, including the broody cicadas.”

A limited run of White Hot Sun Cool Shroud vinyl has been pressed for Solid Sound.Those will be available on a first-come, first-served basis via the Autumn x Belltower records pop-up shop.

During the festival weekend, fans will have the chance to design their own cover using stamps and stickers featuring images from the “Bad Fruit” collection of visual artist Kathleen Ryan.

Those interested can then submit their cover designs to dBpm Records. The band’s favourite will be selected for use on the standard LP and CD packaging when the EP is made generally available for sale in physical formats later this year.
