Last night, Andrew Bird, the most handsome whistler in all of indie rock, did musical-guest duties on Conan and used the opportunity to debut a new song called “Capsized.” It’s a simmering classic-rock groove that requires Bird to play his violin both as a violin and as a guitar. (No whistling, though.) As it turns out, the new song is the first single from a new Bird album called Are You Serious, which is coming later this year. Bird has also just shared a lyric video for the song. Below, watch the performance and check out the studio version of the same song.
Are You Serious is out 4/1 on Loma Vista.
