You’d think today was Christmas, and not Valentines Day what with all the songs artist are giving away today (Charlie XCX / Field Music). And here’s another one to add to the pile, in the form an Andrew Bird cover of the Alpha Consumer track “The Crown Salesman.”
The song is set to be released with Bird’s take on The Handsome Family’s “So Much Wine” as part of a Break It Yourself 7″, which is released today and available via your indie retailer. You can head over the Andrew Bird’s Facebook page and grab yourself a listen of “The Crown Salesman”, and should you have a profile on the site (it’s a pretty unknown site, so you probably won’t), then you can download the track too! Otherwise you can just skip all that and download it from us below.
Although this song doesn’t feature on the album, we should tell you that Break It Yourself hits stores on March 6th through Mom + Pop.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
