Start your week off right with this great new tune “Capsized” by Andrew Bird, off his new album Are You Serious (out April 1st via Loma Vista Recordings). Produced by Tony Berg and featuring contributions from Fiona Apple and Blake Mills, this album has Bird emerging from challenging times and a new process, and an album that may be his best.
Three years ago, while traveling west to California to start a new life with his wife and young child, they stopped at the family farm in rural Illinois for two weeks to catch their breath. The previous two years had been intense to say the least: raising a child in New York City as his wife battled a serious illness. With these dark days behind them, Bird spent the next seven days on the front porch writing the lyrics for what became Are You Serious.
