EDITORS’ NOTES

Always an astute collaborator, Andrew Bird delivers one of his strongest-ever duets—with St. Vincent’s Annie Clark—on his sixth solo studio album. On “Lusitania,” a stately ballad that equates a troubled relationship with famous nautical disasters, Clark’s husky tones provide the perfect complement for his whistling and crooning. The album’s many beguiling combinations include Bird’s audacious marriage of bluegrass and Afro-Caribbean rhythms on “Danse Caribe” and the captivating blend of ambient murk and symphonic grandeur on “Hole in the Ocean Floor.”
