Andrew Bird has released a new album, the amusingly titled My Finest Work Yet, today via Loma Vista. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are Bird’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously Bird shared My Finest Work Yet‘s opening track, “Sisyphus” (which was one of our Songs of the Week), performed the song on the Chris Thile-hosted public radio show Live From Here, and shared a video for the song. Then he shared another song from the album, “Manifest,” via a Matthew Daniel Siskin-directed video that showed Bird and his band recording the album live to tape at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles (the song was also one of our Songs of the Week). The album includes “Bloodless,” a politically themed song that Bird released in November and was our #1 Song of the Week.

In a previous press release Bird said of the album: “I think My Finest Work Yet is my finest work yet.”

The album tackles our current divisive political climate, as Bird explained in the previous press release: “I’m interested in the idea that our enemies are what make us whole-there’s an intimacy one shares with their opponent when locked in such a struggle. If we were to just walk away would our enemies miss us? How did we get to this point and how can we, through awareness of it, maybe pull ourselves out of this death spiral.”

Bird added: “There is a certain optimism to this record…it’s pretty up musically though it doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to the lyrics.”

Paul Butler produced My Finest Work Yet, which was recorded at Barefoot Recordings in Los Angeles, CA. Bird’s last album, Are You Serious, was released in 2016 via Loma Vista.
