A mix of memories, music, and inspiration from Wilco front man and New York Times bestselling author Jeff Tweedy.
What makes us fall in love with a song? What makes us want to write our own songs? Do songs help? Do songs help us live better lives? And do the lives we live help us write better songs?
Following publication of Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back) and How To Write One Song, both New York Times bestsellers that cemented and expanded his legacy as one of America’s best-loved performers and songwriters, Jeff Tweedy is back with another disarming, beautiful, and inspiring book.
Featuring over fifty songs that have both changed Jeff's life and influenced his music —including songs by the Velvet Underground, Joni Mitchell, Otis Redding, Dolly Parton, and Billie Eilish—as well as thoughts on Jeff's own songs, World Within a Song asks why do we listen to music, why we love songs, and how music can connect us to each other and to ourselves.
