Andrew Bird’s new song “Bloodless” debuts yesterday along with the track’s official music video, directed by Matthew Daniel Siskin. In a statement to NPR Music, Bird reflects, “We find ourselves in a cold civil war. Everyone is playing their part too well. Certain actors are reaping power and wealth from divisiveness. Echoes of the Spanish Civil War when fascists and clergy win because they put up a united front against the individualistic and principled (yet scattered) left. We can turn this ship around but need to step back and be honest with ourselves about what’s happening while it’s still relatively bloodless.” This marks Bird’s first new single in over a year.

A physical 7” of the track will be available December 14—pre-order here.
