Love Is The King, a "beautifully honest ode to love and hope," is the follow-up to 2018's WARM and 2019's WARMER, and comes on the heels of Tweedy's second book, How To Write One Song. "At the beginning of the lockdown I started writing country songs to console myself. Folk and country type forms being the shapes that come most easily to me in a comforting way. 'Guess Again' is a good example of the success I was having at pushing the world away, counting my blessings - taking stock in my good fortune to have love in my life," comments Tweedy.
"A few weeks later things began to sound like 'Love Is The King' - a little more frayed around the edges with a lot more fear creeping in. Still hopeful but definitely discovering the limits of my own ability to self soothe." This deluxe edition will include a second disc of live material, all in the same sequence as the studio recording plus a Neil Young cover bonus track titled "The Old Country Waltz."
