Wilco have shared a new song in honor of Star Wars‘ (their 2015 album, not the movie franchise) impending one-year anniversary.

Titled “Locator,” their latest cut is a jangly, loose-cut strummer accented with discordant electric guitar. The Chicago band officially celebrates the surprise-released Star Wars‘ one-year mark on Saturday.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to mark the one-year anniversary of Star Wars than with the gift of song,” they wrote on Twitter. “And so, we give you ‘Locator.’ Happy Birthday, Star Wars!”

“Locator” is available for free download through the band’s website (in exchange for an email address).

In ongoing support of Star Wars, Wilco will return to the road later this month for a lengthy worldwide trek that stretches through late November.
