Three years after Are You SeriousAmerican musician and singer-songwriter Andrew Bird has released a new album called My Finest Work Yet in 2019. Now he has announced Hark!, a brand new Christmas album out October 30th via Loma Vista Recordings.

Building upon last year’s EP of the same name, the thirteen-song set delivers freshly recorded originals – including “Christmas in April,” perhaps the first COVID-inspired Christmas song, which Andrew wrote during lockdown – plus holiday classics and wintertime reimaginings of seasonally ambiguous deep cuts by John Cale, John Prine and Handsome Family.

Check the video for the track “Andalucia“.
