On October 30, prolific folk musician Andrew Bird will release Hands Of Glory, a companion record to this year’s Break It Yourself LP. The album was recorded acoustically with Bird’s full band gathered around one microphone in a church and a barn.
 
Hands Of Glory will feature updated versions of tracks from Break It Yourself, covers of country songs by the Carter Family, the Handsome Family and Alpha Consumer, and a lovely original track, “Three White Horses,” which you can stream below.
 

 
You can catch Andrew Bird and his band this fall touring with Here We Go Magic. Also, check out the tracklist for Hands Of Glory, below.
