Internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Andrew Bird’s new album My Finest Work Yet is out now on Loma Vista Recordings—listen/purchase here: https://found.ee/AB_MFWY
My Finest Work Yet was produced by Paul Butler and recorded live to tape at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Single “Bloodless” set the tone of the project for Bird, he explains, “I’m interested in the idea that our enemies are what makes us whole.” The lyrics are direct and risk-taking, cutting to the quick of what’s happening in our world. Meanwhile, piano plays a strong role on these songs and most of the melodies are tinged with a gospel-jazz-60s soul. Bird was joined on the album by Tyler Chester on piano and organs, Madison Cunningham on vocals, Alan Hampton on bass, Blake Mills on guitar, Ted Poor on drums, plus Abraham Rounds on drums and Mike Viola on guitar on “Archipelago.”
