You just have to trade an email address and you can even opt-out of the marketing stuff. The album is title “LeftRightLeftRightLeft” and they are also handing out free copies at all their shows.
Wilco’s new album “Wilco (The Album)” is set to be released June 30th but you can stream a high quality version off their website – look for the link in the upper right corner.
