Dan Wilson is poised for the release of his solo debut Free Life. Produced by Wilson, a GrammyÃ‚Â® winning songwriter and former member of cult band Trip Shakespeare and the critically acclaimed group Semisonic, the album will be available October 16 on American Recordings. Executive produced by label head Rick Rubin, Free Life features contributions from Sheryl Crow, Sean Watkins (Nickel Creek) and Eric Fawcett (N.E.R.D.), among others.
Now working as a solo artist and collaborating with a collective of notable musicians from his home city of Minneapolis, Wilson earned a Song of the Year GrammyÃ‚Â® in February for his co-writing work on the Dixie Chick's 'Not Ready To Make Nice'.
Wilson's first solo effort, Free Life began as a self-produced project in the Twin Cities and was finished in Los Angeles by Wilson and Rubin, who enthusiastically agreed to help complete the record, saying of Wilson, 'Dan's music touches my soul. He is/has the perfect combination of inspiration and songcraft. He is a timeless artist whose music will feel as good in 50 years as it does today.'
