Feistco? Wilst? Who Cares?

The music world has recently received confirmation on what must be one of the most divine collaborations ever to occur within the wonderful world of music. According to a shitload of sources, Feist will sing a duet with Jeff Tweedy on Wilco's next album, which is expected to drop in June (let the countdown begin). Apparently Feist and the band met at last year's Grammy, both the band and she really liked the others' work, yada yada yada, now we have an official collaboration. The album is not finished yet, but Tweedy has said of it that he's "really proud of it" but had difficulty describing it and said, "...if I could tell you about it then I wouldn't have even made it. I just want you to hear it." Oh baby, I'm getting excited. Here's an example of the beauty that can come out of a Feist collaboration, from the recent Dark Was the Night album.
