Andrew Bird is getting ready to release Hands of Glory, the companion piece to Break It Yourself. The eight-song album was recorded with Bird’s full live band, using all acoustic instruments, gathered around a single microphone in a church and a barn.
Hands of Glory features two new songs, a reworking of Break It Yourself‘s “Orpheo Looks Back,” and covers of the Carter Family, the Handsome Family and others.
