Watch: Andrew Bird performs a live rendition of new track 'Eyeoneye'
Chicago indie stalwart Andrew Bird drops his latest album, "Break It Yourself," today, and fans can catch a glimpse of the Bird-man crew's musical showmanship in the live video for "Eyeoneye."
"Break" comes with the DVD "Here’s What Happened," a thirty-minute performance film that was shot at Bird’s barn/recording studio during the album's genesis.
Starting today (through March 20), fans can rent "Here’s What Happened" for free on the iTunes Store.
Get a taste of what to expect with this video of the band performing the track “Eyeoneye.” While the tune is less reliant on Bird's virtuoso violining, it still has the quirky touch of a glockenspiel and some of his famous whistling skills.
However, the video doesn't do Bird and his band (including the multi-talented instrumentalist Martin Dosh) justice, so you should really catch Bird on his extensive upcoming U.S. tour.
