Andrew Bird has announced his 12th (!) full-length album, and he’s pretty confident it’s his best effort to date. Entitled My Finest Work Yet, the 10-track LP is due out March 22nd via Loma Vista.
Produced by Paul Butler at Los Angeles’ Barefoot Recordings, My Finest Work Yet was recorded live to tape. However, none of the musicians wore headphones and there was no separation between the players, allowing the instruments to intentionally bleed into the different microphones. The way the sounds blend together is a sonic representation of the themes Bird explores in the lyrics, as he tackles “current day dichotomies and how to identify a moral compass amidst such divisive times.”
