Andrew Bird Visits Stephen Colbert

To promote his new album Break It Yourself, singer-songwriter and whistling virtuoso Andrew Bird made an appearance on Stephen Colbert’s show last night. After a hilariously one-sided chat with Colbert (well, what did you expect?) about his fanbase, his music, and more, Bird gave the audience a fantastic peformance of his new song “Eyeoneye”, as well as an exclusive web performance of “Danse Caribe”. Even while flanked by a full band, Bird handles multiple roles, switching between vocals to whistling to playing guitar to playing violin. You can watch the interview as well as the two live performances below.



“Danse Caribe”:

Listen: Andrew Bird – “Eyeoneye”

“Eyeoneye” is our very first look at the extremely talented whistler/singer-songwriter Andrew Bird‘s upcoming new album, Break It Yourself. Although the album won’t make its official release until March 6, the new song will be available for immediate download with a pre-order of the limited edition box set of the album from his website here. In terms of style, “Eyeoneye” has a sound that reminds me of “Masterfade” or “Fake Palindromes” from The Mysterious Production of Eggs so perhaps Bird is taking a pre-Noble Beast type direction to the album. Either way, I’m incredibly excited.
