My Finest Work Yet. Andrew Bird. Released March 22, 2019. About My Finest Work Yet 1 contributor. The artwork for My Finest Work Yet is a recreation of the 1793 painting La Mort de Marat (English: The Death of Marat) by Jacques-Louis David of the French revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Marat lying dead in his bath. The artwork was created by Matthew Daniel Siskin and features Andrew Bird himself posing as Marat. The paper in Bird’s hand reads: such avarice such industriousness such creative zeal and gusto.
He made an acoustic album in a barn; he recorded an instrumental album at the bottom of a canyon, and then another while standing in a river; he toured for years with gigantic spinning gramophone horns; he turned a single song into a seven-track EP by treating it like a film score; he made an actual film score. Along the way, Bird’s image started drifting away from playful fiction-spinner and toward haggard philosopher: sometimes isolating and difficult to follow, always interesting. That irreverent, contentedly existential side of Bird makes a pleasantly surprising return on My Finest Work Yet, his most plainly and darkly funny album in a long time.
