Losing the Black Keys hasn’t slowed down Fat Possum Records. Late last week, the label announced that they’ve scooped up Andrew Bird, who will release Armchair Apocrypha on Fat Possum in spring 2007.
As previously reported, Bird is all geared up to hit the road later this week with near-conjoined twin Martin Dosh (who has a new record, The Lost Take, due on Anticon come October 17, btw). In conjunction with the trek, he will release Fingerlings 3, the third record in a series of “official bootleg” (quoth a press release) discs.
Finally, Bird, along with Mark Booth and Dave Pavkovic, will soon contribute to Molly Shanahan/Mad Shak’s latest dance performance, My Name Is a Blackbird. The three musicians will provide the soundtrack to the project, which is slated to run at Chicago’s the Building Stage on April 12-29, 2007.
