Anna Tivel “Bluebird” – Following a path to better things

And once again we find ourselves saying “not a cover” and wondering if it is still necessary.  Here’s  a new song from Anna Tivel, taken from the upcoming album ‘Living Thing,’ which is due out May 31, 2024 via Fluff & Gravy Records.  A label that is reliably bringing us the finest in Americana – label mates of Tivel include Margo Cilker, Kassi Valazza, Jeffrey Martin – that’s some fine roster.

The album was a product of songwriting in 2020, a challenging year and Anna Tivel has explained that “‘Bluebird’ is about hope, about the beautifully flawed, fundamentally human way we reach toward something better – forward and backward all at once, chaotic, painful, profound. I wrote it after a summer of unrest, isolation, and thick wildfire smoke. My city, the whole country, the world – it all felt alarmingly silent and utterly deafening. History so close you could taste it. The future an unknown expanse lit up in eternal change.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
