Andrew Bird Returns with New Song “Atomized”
- American alt-rock singer-songwriter Andrew Bird returned with a new song “Atomized” alongside a music video on March 17, 2022.
It is his first music in a year since the 2021 collaborative album “These 13” with Jimbo Mathus.
The song is inspired by the late journalist and author Joan Didion, who died last December.
It was written by Andrew Bird and produced by David Boucher. The accompanying music video was directed by Matthew Daniel Siskin.
“It was the first time I had dealt directly and flatly with the evidence of atomization, the proof that things fall apart,” Andrew Bird said in a statement. “Didion was updating W.B. Yeats for the fractious 60s," Andrew Bird observes, by way of explanation. "This song takes it to the pixelated present where it's not just society that is getting atomized but the self that is being broken apart and scattered.”
- This summer, Andrew Bird will debut the song live on his co-headline "Outside Problems" tour with Iron & Wine. From June through August, stretching from coast to coast, the extensive run will bring the two artists to more than 25 shows at such storied venues as Los Angeles' Greek Theatre, Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, New York City's Pier 17 and Colorado's Red Rocks, as well as Chicago's brand new Salt Shed.
"Outside Problems" will mark Bird's first full-band tour in nearly three years, featuring support from Allison Russell and Meshell Ndegeocello.
