Andrew Bird – “Left Handed Kisses” (Feat. Fiona Apple)

Andrew Bird has collaborated with Fiona Apple on “Left Hand Kisses,” the second song he’s shared from his upcoming album Are You Serious after the rocking “Capsized.” “My inclination was to write a song about why I can’t write a simple love song. The song began as an internal dialogue,” Bird says of the track. “At first it was just my voice. Then another voice came creeping in and I thought ‘this should be a duet if I can find the right person.’ I needed to find someone really indicting. She was totally committed. The session was a long whiskey-fueled night — unhinged, for sure. All worth it, of course. I can’t write simple love songs. People are complex.” Man, a long whiskey-fueled night with Andrew Bird and Fiona Apple sounds incredible. Listen to “Left Handed Kisses” below.
