The multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Andrew Bird has announced a new album, well, sort of...

Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of... is a collection of Handsome Family covers - Bird toured with the husband-wife duo last year - and will be released on June 3rd. He has also shared the first glimpse of the covers album with "Tin Foiled," a reimagining of the band's "Tin Foil" which you can stream below. The album will also feature his version of "Far From Any Road" which you'll most likely recognize as the theme song for HBO's True Detective. If not, like, dude, get on that shit. To top it all off, Bird has revealed a bunch of tour dates that begins this June, and a trailer for the album. Check it all out below:
