Standout songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird stopped by Conan last night, and premiered a new song, “Capsized,” from his upcoming album, Are You Serious, due out April 1 on Loma Vista Recordings. The new album is reportedly his most lyrically direct to date, and includes key contributions from Fiona Apple and Blake Mills.
Bird has a big tour coming up, and the North American leg officially kicks off at The Ryman on March 30, before the singer and his band head to Knoxville for this year’s Big Ears Festival. So, grab tickets to one or both of those while you still can, and feel good about the experience as $1 from every ticket sold on the tour will benefit Everytown for Gun Violence, an organization that works to end gun violence and promote safer communities.
Head below to get a taste of the new album with the live Conan performance (and just-released studio version) of “Capsized,” an upbeat blues rock tinged track that has us excited for this next chapter of Andrew Bird.
