Andrew Bird recently put together a new backing band called Hands Of Glory, and now he’ll be releasing an album with them. Titled Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of…, it is a full LP of covers of long-running folk band the Handsome Family, who gained a lot more fans after their 2003 song “Far From Any Road” became the theme song to True Detective. This follows Bird’s I Want To See Pulaski At Night EP from late last year. You can hear his cover of “Tin Foil” and watch a teaser trailer for the new album below.
Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of… is out 6/3 and you can pre-order via Bird’s website.
