Andrew Bird’s ‘The Fake Headlines’ Cover

Andrew Bird Pulaski

Montreal nonprofit the Yellow Bird Project has teamed with dozens of artists over the years to make beautifully designed shirts, posters and other one-off visual items for charity. This year they’re going the audio route as well, releasing a compilation set with Andrew Bird, Keaton Henson, Elvis Perkins,¬†Micah P. Hinson, and more covering fellow notable YBP-friendly acts. Proceeds go to various causes, but only when this project gets off the ground via pre-orders here. In the meantime, here’s a promising first taste: Andrew Bird’s stirring bluegrass take on the New Pornographers’ prescient¬†Mass Romantic cut “The Fake Headlines” above.
