Published Sep 13, 2019The world lost a true musical treasure this week with the passing of Daniel Johnston. And while many artists have been paying their respects to the late artist, Wilco have now offered up their own tribute.
Following Johnston's death from a heart attack earlier this week, the band took on his classic "True Love Will Find You in the End." Jeff Tweedy and co. did the cover while playing in Berlin last night (September 12), and you can watch some fan-captured footage below.
If you would like to hear a whole lot more Daniel Johnston covers, the artist was treated to beautifully assembled compilation titled The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered in 2004. Among the artists who contributed to that project were Tom Waits, Beck, the Flaming Lips, Teenage Fanclub, Death Cab for Cutie, Eels, Bright Eyes and more.

Wilco's new album Ode to Joy arrives October 4 through dBpm Records. The band will also head out on a North American fall tour.
