Hear Andrew Bird’s New Album Early

Everyone’s favorite whistling, fiddle playing, jazz and swing influenced, indie-popster will release his new album January 20th. You don’t have to wait that long to hear it though. This week, NPR’s All Songs Considered is streaming Andrew Bird’s latest on their website.

After a brief first listen, it sounds a little softer than Armchair Apocrypha, while still containing Bird’s signature melodic flair. My early choice for favorite track is one called “Anonanimal.”

You can pre-order the album (nature cover) here… or pre-order the deluxe edition (bug cover) with an extra CD of instrumentals performed by Bird, Wilco drummer Glen Kotche, and jazz bassist Todd Sickafoose here.

  1. Hey, Nelson ~As his name has come at me from so many different directions over the last few months, I feel as if I need to take the time to discover Andrew Bird’s music this year – FYI (and you may know this already)… he is a regular contributor (along with Suzanne Vega, Rosanne Cash, etc.) to Measure for Measure, a New York Times collaborative music blog…http://measureformeasure.blogs.nytimes.com/
