Today Andrew Bird shares “Left Handed Kisses”, the new single from his upcoming album, Are You Serious (out April 1). It features the sorely-missed Fiona Apple, who hasn’t been very active since releasing our favorite album of 2012, The Idler Wheel...

Listen below:

Here is Bird speaking on how the duet came to be:

My inclination was to write a song about why I can't write a simple love song. The song began as an internal dialogue. At first it was just my voice. Then another voice came creeping in and I thought "this should be a duet if I can find the right person." I needed to find someone really indicting. She was totally committed. The session was a long whiskey-fueled night - unhinged, for sure. All worth it, of course. I can't write simple love songs. People are complex.
