Andrew Bird - Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of... on Vinyl LP
Andrew Bird Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of... on Vinyl LP
Things are Really Great Here, Sort Of... is the latest self release by Andrew Bird, consisting of his versions of songs by a band he has loved for many years, The Handsome Family - husband and wife duo of Brett and Rennie Sparks, who have collaborated as a couple for more than 20 years. Bird, who has long been a fan and first covered their track “Don’t Be Scared” in 2003, toured with the band last fall and was inspired to begin working on this collection.
Things are Really Great Here, Sort Of... includes an updated rendition of fan favorite “Don’t Be Scared,” along with “Far From Any Road,” the main title theme song for the HBO series True Detective. Along with his band, The Hands of Glory (featuring Tift Merritt, Alan Hampton, and Eric Heywood), Bird recorded these songs in May 2014 and released them a mere month later. Now available on gatefold vinyl for the first time!
