Wilco confirm Feist vocal on new album


Country-loving rockers Wilco have previewed a work-in-progress tracklisting for their still-untitled eighth album. After much blogosphere speculation, they've also confirmed a guest vocal from Canadian crooner Leslie Feist.

"Jim Scott and the band spent the last few weeks mixing in Jim's studio in Valencia, California," blog Wilco. "Here's a list of song titles spied on the reels - note this is not necessarily complete and not in sequence."

Deeper Down
Conscript (aka I'll Fight)
One Wing
Wilco (the song)
Country Disappeared
Bull Black Nova
Sonny Feeling
You and I

"Rumors and blogs regarding a guest appearance on that last track are, amazingly, quite true. Feist does indeed lend a great vocal to You And I."

Commercial love

While the thought of a Feist/Wilco collaboration sounds impossibly cool, just imagine the commercial potential! 1,2,3,4 The Thanks I Get iPod-ready Volkswagon, anyone?
