New Wilco album title (the blog post)

Wilco's always been a bit quirky with album titles. A.M. is aptly unsubtle; Being There is a nod to the famous novel/film. Summerteeth is a joke (literally); Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is a coded message of nothingness; A Ghost Is Born is paradoxically clever. And even the Sky Blue Sky still strikes me as lazy, I'm sure there's something to it. But Wilco's back, baby! Rivaling REM in interesting takes on the concept of self-titling, Wilco will unleash "Wilco (The Album)" later this summer. The best part? The opener is "Wilco (The Song)" which is damned good, even if the chorus of "Wilco, Wilco, Wilco will love you baby" seems a little overly self-important. And I doubt the "Colbert" part will be included.
