Who said Wilco aren’t hip? Your favorite dad rockers just surprise-dropped their ninth album because, in the words of Jeff Tweedy, “What’s more fun than a surprise?” It’s called Star Wars (A+ marketing, J.J. Abrams), there’s a painting of a white cat on its cover, and the whole thing’s available for free download for the next 30 days. But if you think downloads, like Wilco, are so 2002, you can also stream the 11-song project below. It’ll only take 33 minutes!
