Previously Unreleased Version Of “Summer Teeth” (Slow Rhodes Version) Out Today

LOS ANGELES – Wilco’s third album, Summerteeth, arrived in March 1999 to glowing reviews for its daring arrangements, lush harmonies and revealing lyrics. More than 20 years later, the Chicago-based band is expanding one of its best with multiple collections packed with hours of unreleased studio and live recordings. 

The first is SUMMERTEETH: DELUXE EDITION, a four-CD set that includes a Bob Ludwig 2020 remastered version of the original album (making its CD debut), along with an entire disc of unreleased studio outtakes, alternate versions and demos that chart the making of the album from songwriting demos to alternate studio arrangements to finished masters. 

Summerteeth introduced many fan-favorite classic tracks that the band continues to play live today, including “I’m Always In Love,” “A Shot In The Arm” and “Via Chicago.” The 24 previously unreleased recordings that debut on the DELUXE EDITION explore the making of the critically acclaimed album with demos “No Hurry” and “I’ll Sing It,” outtakes “I’m Always In Love” (Early Run Through) and “Viking Dan,” and alternate versions “Summer Teeth” (Slow Rhodes Version) and “Pieholden Suite” (Alternate). 

The two remaining discs in the CD version of SUMMERTEETH: DELUXE EDITION feature a previously unissued live show. The concert took place late in the Summerteeth tour, on November 1, 1999 in Colorado at The Boulder Theatre, when the new songs had been road-tested and the band was in top form. Sourced from an uncirculated soundboard recording, it features band members Jeff Tweedy, John Stirratt, Ken Coomer and Jay Bennett. Most of the songs on Summerteeth were performed during the show, along with several tracks from the band’s two previous records, Being There (1996) and A.M. (1995), as well as Mermaid Avenue (1999). The latter was the first in a series of albums that Wilco recorded with Billy Bragg where the group wrote music for and sang previously unheard lyrics penned by folk icon Woody Guthrie. 

The CD set will be released on November 6 for $49.98 and will also be available from digital and streaming services.

A limited-edition vinyl version of SUMMERTEETH: DELUXE EDITION will also be released on November 6 for $99.98. Limited to 6,500 copies, the five-LP set features the remastered studio album as well as the unreleased demos, alternates and outtake recordings pressed on 180-gram vinyl. However, instead of the Colorado concert included in the CD package, the LP version contains a special, exclusive performance from early 1999 titled, An Unmitigated Disaster, a previously unreleased live in-store performance at Tower Records on March 11, 1999, just two days after the album was released. The 10-song set, which was broadcast on Chicago radio station WXRT-FM, highlights several tracks from Summerteeth (“We’re Just Friends,” “How To Fight Loneliness” and “Can’t Stand It”). This show will only be available in the LP collection. 

All versions of SUMMERTEETH: DELUXE EDITION are designed by original Summerteeth art director and Grammy ® award winner, Lawrence Azerrad. The iconic cover art is revisited and re-imagined with deluxe treatments, including metallic foil packaging. Additionally, a special 180-gram colored-vinyl version will also be released the same day. Limited to 2,000 copies, the five-LP set will be available exclusively from WilcoStore.com for $99.98. All versions of the release are available for pre-order today. 

Finally, Jeff Tweedy recently announced his second book, How To Write One Song, available on October 13 via Dutton. With How To Write One Song, Tweedy creates a candid and fascinating primer on the art form he knows best, revealing both the behind-the-scenes process, and the joy he gets from making something new. More information on the book can be found here.
