Andrew Bird Announces New Album ‘Inside Problems’

It was largely recorded live...

Critically acclaimed composer and songwriter Andrew Bird has shared plans for new album 'Inside Problems'.

The ever-productive artist had the songs completed before entering the studio, before deciding to record live with a core group of four musicians.

A select batch of overdubs were added, with Andrew Bird working alongside producer Mike Viola.

Out on June 3rd, 'Inside Problems' is led by recent single 'Atomized', and Andrew Bird's new release 'Underlands'.

Lyrically, Andrew Bird dives into Greek myth, contrasting this with his own experiences.

“You just don’t know what’s under the surface, be it the land, the sea, our skin,” he says. “You could be whistling away, projecting contentedness, when really there’s a swirling twisted mess underneath. Looking up, there’s the knowable universe but unless you get into astrology, you’ll find the stars don’t owe us anything and you’re left less assured than when we thought gods threw down lightning bolts.”

“‘Underlands’ introduces an album that deals with the unseen underneath and the membrane that separates your outside problems from your inside problems.”

Tune in now.
