After returning with “Atomized” last month, Andrew Bird has released a second single titled “Underlands”, which is the opening track from Bird’s upcoming album Inside Problems.
“You just don’t know what’s under the surface, be it the land, the sea, our skin,” Andrew Bird explains. “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.”
Inside Problems will follow Bird’s 2021 collaborative album with Jimo Mathus, These 13. The new album is produced by Mike Viola and recorded live by Bird and his four-piece band.
Bird adds of the album, “I have so much fun taking my ideas apart before they really have defined themselves as distinct songs, when they’re still in that amoeba-like state. I love the feeling of chasing ideas and having them split off and go hang out with another idea and then butting them up against each other to see if they talk to each other.”
