Andrew Bird to Release New Album on March 6th, 2012

Indie folk hero and man-of-many-instruments (not to mention expert whistler) Andrew Bird has announced that his sixth LP, Break It Yourself, will be released March 6th, 2012. The album was recorded in Bird’s barn in Western Illinois. No singles have been released yet, but keep your eye out for a new tune to pop up sometime in the near future.

Bird has also released a series of tour dates to promote the new album. Even better, customers who purchase tickets to any date on Bird’s tour will receive a digital copy of Break It Yourself, along with two EPs: Fake Conversations (recorded on Bird’s previous tour) and a 5-track EP taken from the upcoming tour, to be released later this spring. Here are the tour dates:
