Andrew Bird covers Robbie Fulks's "I'll Trade You Money For Wine" (with Nora O'Connor) and Robbie Fulks returns the favor with a cover of Bird's 2001 song "Core and Rind" on the B-side. Limited edition 7" vinyl single.
For 2014 Black Friday/Record Store Day, we're releasing this LIMITED EDITION split single featuring Andrew Bird and Robbie Fulks covering one another's songs. This 7" single will only be available in independent record stores starting Friday November 28th.
Side A is Andrew Bird & Nora O'Connor covering Robbie Fulks's "I'll Trade You Money for Wine" (from his 2013 album Gone Away Backward). Andrew brings an elegant, elegaic classicism to Robbie's timeless tale of travail---um, is that too much alliteration? Anyway, the song takes Robbie's original stark, feral longing to a wonderous new place.
Side B is Robbie Fulks going deep catalog and totally batshit on Andrew Bird's "Core and Rind from his now classic album The Swimming Hour.
**Bird & O'Connor's version of "I'll Trade You Money for Wine" also appears on the 2014 compilation album While No One Was Looking: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records
Further tying the two sides together is the fact that both Robbie and Andrew had the good sense and impeccable taste to employ the vocal services of Nora O'Connor on their respective recordings.
