Andrew Bird is gearing up to release his finest work yet. Erm, what I mean by that is that his new album is called My Finest Work Yet. Hopefully it lives up to the expectation it sets...
Here's the quote, because it says things a lot better than I can:
All tongues and cheeks aside, "My Finest Work Yet" finds Bird grappling with themes of current day dichotomies and how to identify a moral compass amidst such divisive times. “I’m interested in the idea that our enemies are what make us whole—there’s an intimacy one shares with their opponent when locked in such a struggle. If we were to just walk away would our enemies miss us? How did we get to this point and how can we, through awareness of it, maybe pull ourselves out of this death spiral,” says Bird.
Personally, as a long-time Andrew Bird fan, I'm finding "Sisyphus" to be a pretty good representation of his work. Particularly the whistling, because that's totes the Andrew Bird I know.
