In case you missed my earlier post, here’s a clip from NPR’s site explaining the origin of this song:
Producers Collison and Meister spoke with people in the town, then shared the interviews with Stevens. He wrote a song about the ivory-bill, known as the “lord god” or “great god” bird because of its breathtaking appearance. Together, they offer a portrait of Brinkley in word and song.
NOTE:As long as we’re talking about new tracks, here’s a link to the new Flaming Lips song. It’s okay, I guess. Link.
