Bird On The Wire...

Some of you might recall that I posted a few songs by Irish singer Andrew Boland a long time ago, but since then he's been ever so quite. So I was slowly beginning to fear that he had completely given up on recording. Luckily this all changed yesterday, when I found out that he had uploaded a new track to his Myspace profile. In fact it's not really a new track, but a cover of Leonard Cohen's Bird On The Wire, which in Mr. Boland's own words is "only up to take up space, really". Whether or not this is actually the case, I don't know, but personally I think his fine version is worth a shout-out to the world.
Last night I had the opportunity to listen to a new track he's recorded with what might turn into his new band and it does sound very The Smiths inspired and very promising. So obviously I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that they'll work something out.
Finally I've re-posted two of the "oldies", in case you missed them the first time around!
+ Bird On The Wire
+ The Submarine Song (by his former band Shadowplay)
+ Leonard Cohen's Few
