It seems that every time a new Wilco album comes around, drama follows with it. Today, the Chicago Tribute explained the delay in the release of the bands newest album A Ghost Is Born being caused by Jeff Tweedy's being checked into a rehab clinic:

"Wilco singer Jeff Tweedy canceled a European promotional trip for the band's new album last week to check himself into a Chicago rehab clinic.

Tweedy has had a long history of migraines, and has unsuccessfully battled them with prescription painkillers. In response to the rehab stint, Wilco's Nonesuch label has postponed release of the band's fifth album, "A Ghost is Born," by two weeks, to June 22.

The band, recently expanded to a sextet, was to begin a brief tour April 21 in Missouri and ending June 1 at the Coachella Festival in California, but a Wilco spokesman said a decision won't be made until this week about whether those dates will be fulfilled."

In other news:
