ANDREW BIRD – ” I Felt A Funeral, In My Brain ” feat Phoebe Bridgers

Posted: October 26, 2022 in MUSIC

“I came across this Emily Dickinson poem and found it to be the most vivid description of an inner world I’ve ever encountered. It became an inspiration for the songs on Inside Problems. Who better to sing it with than Phoebe Bridgers? I sent her a demo and so, here we are. Thanks to Ms. Dickinson’s publisher at Harvard University Press for allowing us to use this poem. As I understand, her poems weren’t published as she intended them until the 1950s – that is, without the heavy hand of her male editors.” – Andrew Bird.

Andrew Bird is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, whistler and song writer who picked up his first violin at the age of four and spent his formative years soaking up classical repertoire completely by ear. As a teen Bird became interested in a variety of styles including early jazz, country blues and folk music, synthesizing them into his unique brand of pop.
