News from Spin this morning on this lovely little performance: “Last night Jeff Tweedy made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform an acoustic take of Wilco’s “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart.” The bare-bones performance features Tweedy on acoustic guitar, vocals rough yet shining through. Wilco is currently on tour for their latest album, Schmilco, released last year. Tweedy’s new solo project, a collection of acoustic takes of songs from throughout his career, is called Together at Last, and is out June 23. Watch the Seth Meyers performance below.
