We’re excited to be releasing the new single “Snowbird” from Blue-Eyed Son today! Written and performed by Blue-eyed Son, aka Andrew Helprin, â€œSnowbirdâ€ was recorded in Portland and produced by Scott McPherson (Elliot Smith, Neil Finn, She and Him) who also played drums, percussion, piano and organ. â€œSnowbirdâ€ is the second release from Blue-eyed Son who is releasing a new track every month for a year. The series of tracks will be released as an album next year.
Available on iTunes
â€œSnowbirdâ€ follows last monthâ€™s release of the charming, internationally-created single â€œFurther Ya Goâ€ which features Helprin on vocals and guitar with Japanese guest vocalist CHAN-MIKA, Gnkosai on drums, Adachi “PANIC” Soichiro on guitar, Masashi Umeda on bass and produced by Ryoji Saito. The delightful and creative â€œFurther Ya Goâ€ video, which accompanied the single release, was filmed in Yokohamo, Japan, and Venice, CA, and directed by Ichikiro.
The â€œSnowbirdâ€ and â€œFurther Ya Goâ€ singles are the first new music from Blue-eyed Son since the 2013 release of the EP ‘Shadows on the Son’ which reveled in the spirit of alt-rock greats such as Wilco, Granddaddy and The Flaming Lips. After its release, Blue-eyed Son toured extensively and played more than 100 shows in the US and 5 shows in Japan making fans and friends around the world. Now, 2016 finds Blue-eyed Sonâ€™s Helprin writing and recording new songs for a full-length album (release date tba), playing select dates, surfing and enjoying time with his dogs.
