If you’re well-versed in the genre of folk rock, you’ve probably heard the name Andrew Bird. You’re probably a fan of his music, too. In the 16 years since he created his first solo LP, Bird has done the group thing (with his former band Bowl of Fire), done the solo thing, garnered critical acclaim from some of music’s most picky critics, signed a deal with indie powerhouse Fat Possum Records, left the label, signed a deal with rising boutique label Mom + Pop, and released a total of 10 studio albums in the process. But much to the displeasure of fans, it’s been three years since he last put out a formal album. No need to worry, though; one is on the way. Today, we have the first taste of Bird’s Break It Yourself, which will hit physical and digital shelves on March 6 via Mom + Pop. Times have certainly changed since 2009, but this track, “Eyeoneye,” proves that Bird hasn’t much. Although it isn’t guided by violin like some of his most popular songs, “Eyeoneye” showcases the indie folk sound Bird has become known and loved for. Give it a listen below.
