Watch: Andrew Bird On ‘The Colbert Report’

    Just about everyone is in Austin for SXSW at present, so the musical offerings on late night TV are thin on the ground this week. But here comes Andrew Bird to save the day, fresh off the release of his Break It Yourself album, and more than willing to be subjected to Stephen Colbert’s rigorous interview technique. Find out why the host compares him to “a rag soaked in gasoline” in the clip below, which is followed by a couple of songs—“Eyeoneye” and the web exclusive “Danse Caribe.” Bird discusses the themes laced through “Eyeoneye” during the interview, before Colbert asks him which is sadder: playing renaissance festivals or funerals? Those are the kind of probing questions we really need to ask today’s pop stars.
