Andrew Bird Shares ‘Olympians’ Video & ‘We Are Olympians’ EP
Back in March, Andrew Bird released his latest studio album, My Finest Work Yet. Now, the eclectic Illinois rocker has revisted a track off the record, “Olympians,” releasing its official music video plus two new versions of the tune via the We Are Olympians EP.
Bird’s new three-song EP includes the original version of “Olympians” from My Finest Work Yet, a five-minute acoustic take plus “The Gothlympians” remake. The latter is more or less an entirely new song and features guest vocals from Madison Cunningham.
The new music video for the original “Olympians” cut follows up Bird’s live performance video of the track, which was released back in May. Directed by Matthew Daniel Siskin, the visual leans heavily into camp sensibilities, showing Bird and a child dressed as astronauts as they frolic over a green screen.
