"Noble Beast" é o oitavo álbum de originais de Andrew Bird, sucedendo ao aclamado "Armchair Apocrypha" (2007), nele Andrew Bird continua a fazer uso das suas habilidades de escritor de canções, cantor, violinista e mestre do assobio enquanto explora as tradições folk americanas e europeias e as tempera com doses de jazz e blues.

Em Maio passa pela peninsula Iberica.

Andrew Bird is an unlikely rock star. A classically trained violinist and former swing-jazz musician, he performs a quirky mix of Gypsy ballads, jazz, folk and art-rock, with frequently whistled melodies. It's a sound that leaves critics swooning and fans giddy with the kind of devotion normally reserved for pop idols.

On Jan. 20, 2009, Bird stokes the fires of fandom with his fifth full-length studio album, titled Noble Beast. A deluxe version of the album will also be available, packaged with a second disc of instrumental works, featuring collaborations with Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and jazz bassist Todd Sickafoose.
