    andrewbird3 Andrew Bird announces Break It Yourself companion piece: Hands of Glory

    During his recent touring in support of March’s Break It Yourself, folk virtuoso Andrew Bird has performed several “old-time” sets, playing reworked album tracks alongside classic country covers. On October 30th, Mom + Pop will release Bird’s Hands of Glory, a companion piece that recreates those sets on CD and vinyl. Although no tracklist has been announced, the effort will feature several of those reconfigured Break It Yourself cuts, covers of the Carter Family, the Handsome Family, and Alpha Consumer, and a brand-new original composition.

    For your chance to see Bird’s “old-time” stage show live, check him out on tour this fall. Following the itinerary, you can watch Bird’s performance from NPR’s South by Southwest 2012 showcase.
