Today, Andrew Bird returns with his 12th album, My Finest Work Yet. To support its release, the veteran songwriter has mapped out an extensive North American tour, as well as shared a new music video for early single “Manifest”.
Bird’s “My Finest Work Yet Tour” launches early April and will run all the way through the first week of November. The months-long jaunt is scheduled to hit Los Angeles, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Washington, DC, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, Dallas, New Orleans, and Cleveland.
Bird is also marked for multiple stops in the cities of Chicago and New York, as well as a Boston gig co-headlining alongside Calexico and Iron & Wine, who both recently announced a collaborative LP.
