"We're going to start recording new ideas in January and just start that process and keep it going," guitarist Nels Cline told Paste. "I know that there have been ideas bandied about, and the rest of it is like quips, like 'Oh, the next record should just be one long drone instrumental,' and things like that, and you know that's not going to happen."
"It's mostly just cheekiness," Cline explained, adding, "I think most of what people tend to predict within the band never happens. I think that sometimes it starts something and then it changes and takes on a life of its own."
In advance of those early 2010 sessions at Wilco's Chicago loft/studio, the band continues its busy global tour schedule when it kicks off a 10-day European trek in London on Nov. 4. The band also has a West Coast trek slated for February that includes a free show in Vancouver's David Lam Park on Feb. 13 as part of the celebrations surrounding the 2010 Winter Games.
