Andrew Bird may still at work on his follow-up to 2009’s Noble Beast—but come this September fans will be given a new material (of sorts). A documentary featuring Doctor Strings himself is set to premier September 29 at the Vancouver International Film Festival.

The film—titled Fever Year—is the result of filmmaker Xan Aranda’s time with the violinist. As described on the film’s website: “Filmed during culminating months of the acclaimed singer-songwriter’s most rigorous year of touring, Andrew Bird crosses the December finish line in his hometown of Chicago—feverish and on crutches from an onstage injury. Is he suffering hazards from chasing the ghost of inspiration? Or merely transforming into a different kind of animal ‘perfectly adapted to the music hall?’”

Cool friends alert: Bird pals St. Vincent, Martin Dosh, Jeremy Ylvisaker, and Michael Lewis make appearances.
