Andrew Bird just released his thirteenth album, Are You Serious, and yes, I am. He has released thirteen albums. He’s one of those rare musicians who says that all he wants to do is make music, and actually means it.
What’s even better about this whole situation is the goddess of haunting vocal cords, none other than her majesty Fiona Apple, appears on a track titled ‘Left Handed Kisses’, and god is it good to see her again. The last time we did, things seemed a little rocky, but here’s proof she’s back to her fighting self. And by that I literally mean fighting, as she viciously delivers retorts to Bird’s yearning verses with the savageness only accessible to a woman scorned. Fiona is back, bitches. It just took someone like Andrew Bird to resurrect her.
