It’s been quite the wait, but we assure you, it’s worth it. Today, Bill Fay shares two new tracks from his highly-anticipated album Life Is People. Premiering today at Pitchfork, the first track, “This World,” features guest vocals from Jeff Tweedy. Listen above. A longtime Bill Fay fan and supporter, Tweedy famously covered his song “Be Not So Fearful” in the Wilco documentary I Am Trying To Break Your Heart and continues to do so at live shows. Bill returns support to Tweedy on the second track offered for streaming today. It’s a cover of Wilco’s “Jesus, Etc.” Stream below!
Life Is People comes out next Tuesday, August 21. Pre-order now from SC Distribution. You also have the option to pre-order from Other Music and when you do, you’ll immediately receive a download of the entire album before it hits stores!
