Andrew Bird’s charming, old-timey cover of The New Pornographers’ “The Fake Headlines” now has its own music video. Directed by Luke McCutcheon and Michael Yablonski, the Pinocchio-esque clip stars a marionette that wants to become a real boy. Watch below.
Bird’s cover appears on Good People Rock, a forthcoming compilation that benefits Montreal-based charity Yellow Bird Rock. Due out on April 14th via Madic, the 10-track effort also features contributions from Elvis Perkins, Alec Ounsworth, and more covering the likes of TV on the Radio, Rilo Kiley, Hot Chip, Beach House, Sharon Van Etten, and others.
