Wilco's 2007 certified gold-selling album
Limited edition 2LP "Sky Blue" vinyl reissue
"Hands down, this has been the easiest Wilco record to make, so naturally I'm in love with it," Wilco front man Jeff Tweedy told Harp magazine about Sky Blue Sky ahead of its 2007 release. "From the very first session when we sat down to work on the material, everybody has been pointed in the same direction … and that made the whole experience a lot of fun."
Featuring the band that was assembled after the release of 2004's two-time Grammy Award-winning album A Ghost is Born, Sky Blue Sky was the first studio album from a lineup that had received overwhelmingly positive critical and popular acclaim for its nearly three years of live shows and which has remained the same to today: guitarist, singer, and principal songwriter Jeff Tweedy; longtime Tweedy band mate bassist John Stirratt; percussionist Glenn Kotche; keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen; multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone; and avant-jazz guitarist Nels Cline.
The 12 new songs on Sky Blue Sky were recorded at the band's Chicago studio, The Loft. The album was produced by Wilco, recorded by TJ Doherty (Sonic Youth, The Hold Steady), and mixed by Jim Scott (The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Dixie Chicks, The Rolling Stones).
