Wilco Performs New Single ‘Tell Your Friends’ On ‘Colbert’
Wilco performed their new single “Tell Your Friends” on last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Frontman Jeff Tweedy also performed an online-only version of the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot favorite “Jesus Etc.” that was shared by the show.
Wilco debuted “Tell Your Friends” on last Saturday’s episode of Live From Here. Wednesday’s appearance on The Late Show served as the debut performance of the new song, which the band played remotely while isolating due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the band’s families also appeared on last night’s episode, including Nels Cline‘s wife and collaborator Yuka C. Honda and Jeff Tweedy’s sons Spencer Tweedy and Sammy Tweedy.
“Tell Your Friends” is now available to download with proceeds benefiting World Central Kitchen. Watch Wilco’s debut performance of their new single “Tell Your Friends” and Jeff Tweedy’s solo take on “Jesus Etc.” below:
