Hooray for Covers! Andrew Bird, “Meet Me Here at Dawn”

Oh, Andrew.

I’ll be honest, I’m predisposed towards liking anything Andrew Bird comes up with, but he makes it so easy by being so darn amazing all of the time.  I first heard his cover of this song during the shows he did at Fourth Presbyterian here in Chicago in December, and it rapidly became a favorite of mine.

He sat down to film this for the Voice Project, a “US based non-profit inspired by the women of Northern Uganda who have been using music to help end the two decade long war that has devastated the region of Northern Uganda, Eastern Congo, and Southern Sudan.”  It’s a great organization which is producing some fabulous covers and raising awareness of the cause in Uganda.
