Andrew Bird previewed another track off his forthcoming album Are You Serious when he released “Left Handed Kisses,” a dreamy, whiskey-soaked back-and-forth track featuring Fiona Apple.

“My inclination was to write a song about why I can’t write a simple love song,” Bird says in a release. “I needed to find someone really indicting. She was totally committed. The session was a long whiskey-fueled night – unhinged, for sure.”

Apple follows through, delivering lines like, “If you really loved me, you’d risk more than a few fifty cent words in your back-handed love songs.”

Earlier this month, Bird debuted “Capsized,” the first song off the album, on Conan. Are You Serious, out April 1, is now available for pre-order. He’s already out on a world tour, which continues through May. See full dates on his website.
