It was inside Jeff Tweedys second home, The Loft in Chicago, that Love Is The King was recorded in April of 2020. Surrounded by an assemblage of treasured instruments and loved ones in a world that felt more and more alien by the day.

Out on dBpm Records, Love Is The King, a beautifully honest ode to love and hope, is the follow-up to 2018s WARM and 2019s WARMER, and comes on the heels of Tweedys second book, How To Write One Song, out October 13th via Penguin Random House’s Dutton. At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself. Folk and country type forms being the shapes that come most easily to me in a comforting way. ‘Guess Again’ is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away, counting my blessings ” taking stock in my good fortune to have love in my life, comments Tweedy. A few weeks later things began to sound like ‘Love Is The King’ ” a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in. Still hopeful but definitely discovering the limits of my own ability to self soothe.” Jeff Tweedy
