Andrew Bird’s new song “Bloodless” debuts today along with the track’s official music video, directed by Matthew Daniel Siskin—watch/share here. 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. See below for the lyrics in full…
BLOODLESS BY
ANDREW BIRD
THEY’RE PROFITING FROM YOUR WORRY
SELLING BLANKS DOWN AT THE DMZ
BANKING ON THE SOUND AND FURY
WONDER WHAT IT’S TO DO WITH ME
BLOODLESS FOR NOW
I’M KEEPING MINE WITH THE ALTRUISTS
PUTTING MY WEIGHT BEHIND THE DANCER
I KNOW IT’S HARD TO BE AN OPTIMIST
WHEN YOU TRUST LEAST THE ONES WHO CLAIM TO HAVE THE ANSWERS
AND IT’S AN UNCIVIL WAR
BLOODLESS FOR NOW
AND THE POETS THEY EXPLODE LIKE BOMBS
WHILE THE GENTRY IS DRINKING MOËT CHANDON
TURN AROUND AND QUOTE A WELL KNOWN PSALM:
DON’T YOU WORRY ‘BOUT THE WICKED
DON’T YOU ENVY THOSE WHO DO WRONG
AND YOUR INNOCENCE WILL BE LIKE THE DAWN
WHILE THE JUSTICE OF YOUR CAUSE WILL SHINE LIKE THE NOONDAY SUN
THE BEST HAVE LOST THEIR CONVICTIONS
WHILE THE WORST KEEP
SHARPENING THEIR CLAWS
PEDDLING IN THEIR DARK FICTIONS
WHILE WHAT’S LEFT OF US WE JUST HEM AND WE HAW
AND IT FEELS LIKE 1936
IN CATALONIA
CATALONIA
 The new song comes on the heels of Bird’s critically acclaimed symphonic orchestra shows, of which Los Angeles Times proclaimed, “Bird’s violin virtuosity, gracious demeanor and self-searching songs seemed right at home.”
Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler, and songwriter who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. He has released 13 albums to date and performed extensively worldwide.
