Jeff Tweedy Performs “Bad Day Lately,” “Opaline” on CBS This Morning: Watch

Music, News

Jeff Tweedy appeared on CBS This Morning to play two songs: “Bad Day Lately” and “Opaline,” both of which appear on his latest album Love Is the King, released yesterday. The performances were shot at the Hideout in Chicago. Check those out below. 

During an interview with CBS’ Anthony Mason, the Wilco frontman discussed his quarantine performance series with his family and also renewed his call for the music industry to do more to support Black communities, citing the Black origins of rock ‘n’ roll and most American popular music. “Everybody in my profession—I truly believe—if they have any kind of connection to rock ‘n’ roll, any kind of connection to popular music in the last 100 years, you owe a debt to somebody that wasn’t paid, primarily people that were of African-American descent,” he said. “It’s still an uneven playing field, and I don’t think a lot of people want to believe that, maybe, but it is.”

 Love Is the King was released in full yesterday. Tweedy previously released the singles “Guess Again,” “Love Is the King,” and “Gwendolyn,” the latter of which features a video with cameos from the likes of Jon Hamm, Fred Armisen, Elvis Costello, Courtney Barnett, and more.
