"Wilco makes an understated Magnum Opus. On Cruel Country, the Chicago band ponders a genre and a nation." - New York Times "Wilco goes country as only it can on Cruel Country, an immensely rich 21-track deep dive into America that is a raw and engaging take on our tumultuous times." - ABC News Indie rock/alt-country legends Wilco release their 12th studio album Cruel Country. The double-album features twenty-one songs written by frontman Jeff Tweedy, primarily tracked live-off-the-floor at The Loft, the band's recording studio in Chicago. The sessions included all six Wilco members together in The Loft for the first time since The Whole Love (2011). With minimal overdubbing, Tweedy compared their recording approach on Cruel Country to that which they last employed on Sky Blue Sky (2007).

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
