Wilco has formed its own label, dBpm Records ("Decibels per Minute"), which will release future Wilco recordings and will be run out of the offices of Tony Margherita Management in Easthampton, MA with ANTI- Records providing distribution and additional label services. Mavis Staples' Grammy nominated You Are Not Alone LP (produced by Jeff Tweedy) came out on ANTI- earlier this year. dBpm's first release will be the next Wilco record, due late in 2011.
"This is an idea we've discussed for years,” Jeff Tweedy said. “We really like doing things ourselves, so having our own label feels pretty natural to me. And, to be working with ANTI- a label that has its roots in a label that was started by a punk rock guy to sell his own records seems like a perfect fit for us.”
