Birds Of Chicago Announce New Album | Love In Wartime Out May 4 on Signature Sounds
“Birds of Chicago seduce us with their joyous, intimate, spare, rousing, soaring vocals and their hauntingly evocative lyrics.
Love in Wartime contains one memorable song after another, each tune its own musical suite filled with spiraling melodic beauty.” No Depression
“you’ll still be humming the melodies from each song” Elmore Magazine
“fervent vocal chemistry and Nero’s poetic, metaphysical lyrics with dynamic instrumentation recalling The Band during their early-’70s heyday” Pasadena Weekly
Love in Wartime is a rock and roll suite with a cinematic sweep. Co-produced by Nero and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars), it evokes epic efforts of the 60’s and 70’s, with love as the undeniable through-line.
The first single “Roll Away” was written as a shot in the arm for the heartsick, hibernating or otherwise embittered, and invokes the rites of spring with the very real sense that there’s no time to lose. “The mission is simple: get people to a dance floor and get some love lights switched on,” says Russell. The song’s message is even simpler: it’s never too late. “Roll Away” embodies what critics loved about Birds of Chicago’s 2016 album Real Midnight, produced with Joe Henry- joyously urgent rock songs with deep lyricism, gut-punch singing and fevered musicality.
