New album expected to be released in October:

[Andrew Bird] and the band have been recording a new album on the fly during off-days at stops along the way. Bird describes it as “old-timey” because it leans on old standards like “Railroad Bill” and an old-fashioned single-mike ethos.

“It’s become a staple part of the set. We do ‘Give It Away’ unplugged into one microphone,” Bird says of the album, which will mix covers and originals and is expected out in October. “It’s a similar kind of space [as Break It Yourself], very live. The tempos fluctuate. The same kind of uneasiness … I feel like people aren’t buying that many records anyway. You might as well just put out as much music as you want.”
