Homecoming: An Envisioned Soundtrack

A soldier arrives home from Afghanistan to find his lost high school love. Problem is she’s marrying another man, old ghosts of the past linger the town, it’s the perpetual misty fall/winter of New England. Hearts will be mended, hearts will be broken. The envisioned soundtrack.

From Andrew Bird’s forthcoming Hands Of Glory, a musical companion to Break It Yourself, available October 30th via Mom+Pop. Get a download when you pre-order the album from http://www.andrewbird.net.

Andrew Bird’s ability to make a wistful melody is coming close to the point where it’s not unreasonable to mention him among the likes of McCartney in terms of talent.  "Three White Horses" opens with a sparse vocal arrangement with subtle instrumental flourishes, like the fantastic steel string guitar meets violin slide and some great vocal harmonies along the way.
