If you love Wilco and you love the movie Star Wars, only one of those two things matters in regards to this album because despite sharing the title, Wilco's latest offering has absolutely nothing to do with the sci-fi classic.

The album contains 11 songs and is the band's first since their 2011 release The Whole Love. And, even if you're not a Wilco fan, you might still love the album's amazing and hilariously incongruous cover art.
