LSTN: Bill Fay Premieres New Track “This World” and Wilco Cover “Jesus, Etc.”

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!
