Andrew Bird will release a Handsome Family
cover album June 3rd entitled Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of...
The album will include songs from the Albuquerque based band including "Far From Any Road," also the theme of HBO's "True Detective," and "Tin Foil," which shows up on the album as"Tin Foiled."
Bird is quite fond of Handsome Family as he has covered the band many times in concert and even toured with the husband-and-wife duo last year.
Bird and his new band Hands of Glory, featuring guitarist Tift Merritt, will embark on an American tour in support of the album this summer.
