Take Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, add a guitar c/o of Jeff Tweedy, add one cat pun and some sunshine; shake well. Pour it out and you have “Chairman Meow,” one of 11 tracks from the duo’s upcoming fourth album, Wassaic Way (out Aug. 6), produced by Wilco’s Tweedy and Patrick Sansone. The song name-checks L.A. neighborhoods like Hancock Park, Miracle Mile, and Koreatown while paying ah-oooh tribute to the titular cat owner.
It is maybe almost too delightful. Stream it exclusively below.
