New Andrew Bird Song

Morning, all. Due to a really fun weekend, no time to make this blog original again today. BUT, this is surely the next best thing. The first track from Andrew Bird’s forthcoming (late January of ’09) album, Noble Beast, debuted on Pitchfork this morning. “Oh No” is pretty standard, if a touch slight, Bird, but note some promising developments. That persistent buzz of electric guitar, the way Bird’s vocals sound both more considered and loose, the layers of background vocals.

The news story associated with the premiere also notes that Bird has a new live album available on his website. And go figure, it’s for a Montreal show I purchased tickets for last year and couldn’t go to. If something prevents me from getting to his Portsmouth gig on Wednesday, a reckoning there will be.
