Not exactly known for writing love songs, Andrew Bird teamed with the inimitable Fiona Apple for his latest release, “Left Handed Kisses.” Of the song, Bird had this to say:

“My inclination was to write a song about why I can’t write a simple love song.  The song began as an internal dialogue,” Bird says. “At first it was just my voice. Then another voice came creeping in and I thought ‘this should be a duet if I can find the right person.’ I needed to find someone really indicting. She was totally committed. The session was a long whiskey-fueled night – unhinged, for sure. All worth it, of course. I can’t write simple love songs. People are complex.”
