With little warning, highly-regarded and Grammy-award winning Chicago band Wilco has digitally released a new album Star Wars through its own dBpm Records.

Star Wars is the band’s ninth studio album and its first since 2011’s The Whole Love.  The album is available for free download for thirty days only, via wilcoworld.net and anti.com, as well as through iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Digital. It is also available through traditional streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music and Rdio.

Star Wars will be available for purchase on CD on August 21 and vinyl on November 27.  Pre-order of the physical releases is available now on wilcoworld.net. Digital downloads remain free until August 13 2015.

According to anti.com:

“Why release an album this way and why make it free? Well, the biggest reason, and I’m not sure we even need any others, is that it felt like it would be fun,” Tweedy said. “What’s more fun than a surprise? Enough of this 20th anniversary already, here’s something fresh.”

Here’s the album cover from the interestingly-named Star Wars:
