Keeping pace with the Fever Year set in the recent documentary about Andrew Bird's ceaseless creative process and constant touring comes our first listen off his upcoming companion album to this year's magnificent Break It Yourself, Hands of Glory due October 30.
The companion album features songs from recording sessions inspired by the old-timey portions in his live set, in which Bird, along with drummer Dosh and the rest of his band, play an acoustic set up to a single mic, presenting renditions of classic country songs and reinterpretations of Bird songs past and present.
"Three White Horses" is a song Bird premiered at The Independent in San Francisco at an Outside Lands pre-show during one of these sets, which also featured a rustic re-imagining of "Orpheo Looks Back," as well as country standard "Railroad Bill," all highlights featured on Hands of Glory.
